  Observer: Astronomy: Observer - Sky-RECORDING THE SKY
Posted on Saturday, December 04 @ 17:04:33 CST by astronomy


Some amateur astronomers specialize in particular kinds of observations: perhaps mapping storm features on Jupiter, tracking down an asteroid, or estimating the brightness of a variable star. Submitting formal reports of these observations to (organizations can provide a great sense of accomplishment.

Indeed, astronomy is one of the few sciences in which amateurs still regularly make genuine contributions.

Even if your observations go no farther than home, you will find keeping some type of sky diary or logbook very satisfying. It can be simply a list of what you see each night out, embellished with some descriptions. Many people like to add sketches of eyepiece views. Others use cameras to record the sky.
