About Scope Out

Scope Out Next Month is the monthly newsletter of Jim Johnson’s Astronomy. It is written with three perspectives in mind: audience, time and location. From an audience perspective, it is a teaching platform for those interested in learning more about astronomy. Temporally, the perspective is the end of evening twilight, or an hour or so after the Sun dips below the horizon. This seems to make sense because that is when the target audience is most likely to go outside and observe. And finally, the author’s geographic location in Maryland (approximately 39.15 degrees north, and 77.01 degrees west) is a reasonable, northern hemisphere approximation for the location for most of the envisoned audience.
