This is a brand new ONLINE LIVE event! On April 2 @ 18:45 UT,  The Virtual Telescope Project  will be hosting this amazing show. Thanks to some great timing and a feat of geometry, we are treated to an eclipse of two moons. Callisto, the third grandest moon of Jupiter will seem to move over the largest moon in the solar system, Ganymede. A sight not to be missed.  Check out the GAM website for details .

Join this special hangout featuring the  Myths on the Birth of the Universe . Host Adrian Fartade will be chatting about how cultures thought about the origins of the universe and our Earth. This LIVE event will be a trip into history and a journey into the minds of our oldest cultures. Questions will be welcome. Tune in April 21, 2015 @ 20:00 UT

At the end of the month you will be able to go out and view...
