About Bob King I've been a skywatcher and amateur astronomer since childhood. I'm also a long-time member of the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO), write the Astro Bob blog and am the author of three books: Night Sky with the Naked Eye (2016); Wonders of the Night Sky You Must See Before You Die (2018) and Urban Legends from Space (2019). The universe invites us on an adventure every single night. All we need to do is look up.
There's much to take in during Saturday morning's total lunar eclipse, including a rare Moon-galaxy pairing, the splendid summer Milky Way, and a chance to see your shadow reach all the way to the Moon.
