Manage episode 275625725 series 49427
By Chris Beckett & Shane Ludtke, two amateur astronomers in Saskatchewan.
The guys talk about the often overlooked beauty of our nearest cosmic neighbor, the Moon. They discuss unaided, naked eye observing, sketching, the best times to observe, the different areas on the Moon and what sorts of things you can actually see with a telescope or binoculars. They also discuss their favorite sights on the Moon and good books and charts to buy.
