Storm Team 11 Starwatch: Monday, January 7th - Sunday, January 13th 2019

Check out what you can see in the sky this week!

Happy Monday!  

Welcome to the 56th edition of StormTeam 11 Starwatch! This is a blog that will be posted weekly that will list events happening in the sky this week! 

Overall, a pretty quiet week in the sky. One event to note is that Friday, January 11th and Saturday, January 12th at night, you will be able to see Mars above and to the right of the Moon (https://www.skyandtelescope.com/observing/this-weeks-sky-at-a-glance-january-4-12/). 

Additionally, this week is a good time to start planning for the total lunar eclipse which will occur Sunday, January 20th - Monday, January 21st and will be visible here in the Tri-Cities (https://www.baysmountain.com/astronomy/observatory-details/)! Check out this press release from Bays Mountain for more details (https://www.baysmountain.comastronomy/observatory-details/). A detailed Starwatch blog will also be posted about this event in the coming weeks!
