Praise for the Starman of Mitzpe Ramon

…you were the highlight of our trip to the Negev. I was worried that a two hour plus astronomy talk would be a step too far....but it was truly fantastic and loved by us all. Was sorry when it ended. It is a must for all - you are a STAR man on many fronts.

Fabulous program. Thank you so much!

NASA Shares the Highlights of January 2017 in the Night Sky

First Meteor Shower of the Year Peaks January 4

The Quadrantids meteor shower peaks tonight, January 4th. The greatest number of meteors will be seen after midnight, but they can also be seen earlier in the evening. During last night's star tour we watched for Quadrantids but only saw a handful. On a good year as many as 40 per hour can be seen. All you need is a dark sky, a relatively clear horizon, and your naked eyes. Just look up! We'll be looking for them again on tonight's star tour.

NASA explains more about the Quadrantids meteor shower.
