Astrophiz 141: February SkyGuide ~ Dr Ian Musgrave

Here is our regular monthly treat for all naked-eye celestial observers, telescopers, and astrophotographers from Dr Ian Musgrave, avid amateur astronomer, molecular pharmacologist and toxicologist.

First up, Ian takes us through the dates of the moon phases for the month, noting the best times for observations of constellations and clusters without the glare of the moon. We can also look forward to some very nice views of the crescent moon ‘dancing’ past planets and viewing some very nice bright planets line up in the mornings before dawn.

In Ian’s Tangent, he explains various ‘star naming’ scams and the ridiculous practice of purchasing exoplanet NFTs and the harms that NFT server farms do to our planet
