This month’s column is for the birds. Literally, as we visit a nebulous aviary along the gentle stream of the southern Milky Way populated by a swan and an eagle. We paid a call here last summer, when we focused on M24, the Small Sagittarius Star Cloud. This year, we return to explore a few more showstoppers in and around the area.

Nice.

 

 

My 16x70 binoculars portray the swan as floating upside down, which I find worrisome. Telescopes, of course, invert the view to show that the swan is alive and well.

 

I've never had a single worry. It's just a rubber ducky that some kid knocked over in the Milky Way tub. :grin:

Can we have the PDF's posted for each article? It makes life a lot easier on in the field on a mobile device.
