Show Notes

This podcast focused more on the following objects:

  • Comet NEOWISE (C\2020 F3)
  • The Summer Triangle — shown in red below
  • The Ecliptic — shown in purple below
  • Planets:  Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, & Venus
  • Radiant of the Perseids Meteor Shower in constellation Perseus from Big Dipper to Cassiopeia — shown in blue arrows and light blue text

Fun facts! The ‘event’ of a comet appearing to us on Earth is called an ‘apparition’

The first X-Ray source that was later confirmed to be a black hole was found in one of the ‘wings’ of Cygnus The Swan in The Summer Triangle.
