    Wondering What's Up in the Sky This Month? - Talk to the Doc!  Each month, our Observatory Director, Dr. Aaron Clevenson, assembles a 2 page PDF file that contains objects that are visible in the evening sky during the next month.  If you are looking for a more complete list of those objects that are visible in the nighttime sky, he has also created a spreadsheet in Excel. (It will not work on Macintosh Computers.) It is organized using the lists of the Astronomical League. It is called "What's Up Tonight, Doc?"  Note:  This is a large file and will take a bit of time to load.)  To access this spreadsheet or the PDF file, click here.  
    For more information on the lists, the Astronomical League, and the North Houston Astronomy club, please ask any of the astronomers on the next public night at the observatory.
