Deep Sky Sailing
Vela, the sails of the legendary ship ‘Argo’ lies to the west of Crux (Southern Cross) (See Map 1). Two stars of the ‘False Cross’ actually belong to Vela. The milky way runs through Vela, with several deep sky objects to be found. This month I selected a Globular cluster and a Planetary nebula from the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa top 100 list for Deep Sky Objects.

The King and the Charmer
Jupiter, the king of planets, currently dominates the Eastern sky during the early evening from the constellation ‘Ophiuchus’. Ophiuchus is the ‘snake handler’(or charmer) and fits between the two parts that make up ‘Serpens’ (Serpens Caput (head) and Serpens Cauda (tail)).
