More about Nights Skies Network

Night Skies Network is a live streaming web site that allows amateur astronomers from all around the world to broadcast live images of objects from space using their own telescopes and special video cameras. The broadcasters answer questions about the objects and equipment being used. All one has to do is sign up with Night Skies Network to watch and you can chat with them and others viewers as you observe the objects. It's all free.

Tips on joining the chat: Put your name and even your country in the chat box before asking a question so people will know who you are and where you live. The chat can get busy at times and the broadcaster may miss your question so if after a few minutes he has not answered your question just repeat the question.  If your club is watching together you may want to ask questions as a group.

Remember, you may see broadcastes at any time of day or night where you are, and broadcasters come and go depending on conditions where they are, so check the site once in a while to see who's live.
