Hoshinomura Observatory * Hoshi Matsuri

I participated in the Hoshinomura Observatory * Hoshi Matsuri and met many astronomical fans. This is the last astronomical event participation in Japan. I was able to say hello to both astronomical magazines. The clear prominence of the solar telescope I watched at the venue and the elaborate construction of the 5cm F / 6 reflecting telescope were wonderful.

Venus 2022-01-07 It is 2 days until the inner conjunction.

Venus 2022-01-07 It is 2 days until the inner conjunction. This time Venus is on January 9th, and the angle from the sun is less than 5 °, so it can still be seen with a telescope. But you need to be very careful. From today’s image, I think that the angle of circumference of Venus has reached 260 °.

Mini Astronomical Observatory November 29, 2021

2021-11-29 Mini astronomical observation party It is an annual astronomical observation party. I changed it the day before due to bad weather forecast on the 30th, so the number of participants decreased, but I managed to enjoy the stars with 45 cm newtonian. The Orion Nebula was beautiful, but the M1 (Crab Nebula) felt faint. Also, because seeing was good, I could watched Sirius’s companion star (Sirius well for the first time this season, but it was a celestial body that was difficult for those who saw it for the first time. Thank you for your hard work! !!

2nd Astronomical Observatory

2021-11-13 The 2nd Astronomical Observatory (To Be Maru Co., Ltd.) was held at the Kunou Country Club parking lot in Chiba prefecture on a cloudless clear night. Although there are trees on the west side of the parking lot, we enjoyed watching Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, and the moon with large and small telescopes from the evening. There were 19 participants (15 adults and 4 children), many of whom were new to watching the stars in earnest, and had them take a closer look at the moon. Participants brought their own telescopes, and there were many telescopes for the number of people. Thank you for cooperation. There was also warm pork soup, videos for toddlers and something to play with. The content has been enhanced since last year, and I think that you have a little understanding of the beauty of celestial bodies.

Astronomical Observing Party Plateau Satomi

Helping with the astronomical viewing event at Plateau Satomi! The event resumed after the coronavirus infection died down. Mr. Okamura from Tsukuba gave a very good explanation. We watched Saturn, Jupiter, the Perseus Double Cluster, and Subaru with the 20cm refractor. The sky in the background was dark, but the stars shone brilliantly, so different from the outside world!

Planetary Observatory July 21, 2021

Planetary observation party 2021-07-21 After the end of the rainy season, it was a great time to observe the planet( Jupiter and Saturn with good seeing, gathering star friends . As a result of comparing both objects with the 45 cm newtonian and C14, the 45 cm reflection observed better. After about 1 am, the Great Red Spot of Jupiter turned to the front and I could observe Jupiter very well with the binocular device, and all the participants were very satisfied. We can see Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and striped patterns! There was a happy word. Thank you for your hard work until late at night.

July 16, 2021 Astronomical Observatory Rehearsal

2021-07-16 Narita Dream Dairy Farm It is a rehearsal practice of the astronomical observation party. Although it is a small observation event planned in the future, I would like to install a telescope and practice the rehearsal while looking at the celestial bodies and make use of it in the future. I enjoyed camping with my son and his wife!
