A behind the scenes look at public observing, or "Sidewalk Astronomy" events, with Sidewalk Astronomer and Galilean Nights Task Group member, Jane Jones. What better way to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy 2009 than to look at the Moon and planets through a telescope?
Jupiter An excellent video from JPL's "What's Up?" series, showcasing the planet Jupiter, its moons and the Juno mission due to launch in 2011.
The Moon Take a step back in time and see how astronomers like Galileo studied the Moon. When you gaze at the Moon today, you'll see the same views that enchanted theses astronomers centuries ago.
Saturn The jewel of the Solar System, Saturn. This JPL video showcases the ringed planet, how it has been observed through history and what recent missions have investigated.
Venus This video from JPL tells us more about our sister planet, Venus. Galileo observed the phases of Venus in 1609, providing evidence that Venus orbited the Sun and not the Earth.
The Sun Galileo observed Sun spots in 1610, but he wasn't the first. This JPL video tells us more about the historic astronomers to have observed the Sun and what modern space missions have to tell us.
