It's almost the middle of June, which means that it's mid-winter here at my home in the South and the much-delayed cold weather has finally arrived! It's an excellent time of year for stargazing with long crisp evenings, week-long stretches of cloudless sky, a spectacular range of objects to point our telescopes towards, and a shaky national power utility gifting us with repeated blackouts for extra-dark skies. But what to do if you're not blessed with such ideal observing conditions? Well that's where the Carnival of Space comes in! Welcome, enjoy the show, try the popcorn!
