May 26, 2011
Each week, Astronomy magazine Senior Editor Michael E. Bakich, a master at explaining how to observe, posts a podcast about three objects or events you can see in the sky.
This week’s first large-scope object is the Needle Galaxy in Coma Berenices. This wonderful object also goes by the designations NGC 4565 and Caldwell 38.
