Hal Bidlack
  • In a continuation from last week’s episode of Looking Up, we learn more about the constellation Corvus the Crow. This week Hal spotlights another star in that constellation – Kraz – which seems to be a star that’s down on its barium essentials.

  • This week, and next on Looking Up, Hal Spends some time on a couple of stars in the Spring / Summer constellation Corvus the Crow. The top star, so to speak, in Corvus is Gienah, at the top of the roughly diamond-shaped constellation. What does the name mean?

  • This week on Looking Up Hal talks about April showers of a different sort – the Lyrid meteor shower. If you are an early riser, or a stay-up-all-nighter, the pre-dawn hours of April 22nd have a special show ready for you – the annual Lyrid meteor shower.

  • This week on Looking Up we learn about a distant star that sure could use a leg up on finding another supply of hydrogen for its core.

  • On this week’s episode of Looking Up we hear about two familiar constellations and what they have in common. We’ve talked before about most everyone’s favorite winter constellation, Orion the Hunter. We’ve also talked about Taurus the Bull, who is the target of Orion’s hunt.

  • Good news/bad news on this week’s episode of  Looking Up. Now you can check the weather before your trip to Mars, but you probably won’t like it.  We are, or at least I hope we are, nearing the end of a long and cold winter.

  • Sirius may be the ‘big dog’ in the constellation Canis Major but Wezen can throw its ‘weight’ around, too, as we learn on this week’s Looking Up.

  • Hal is ‘over the moon’ in bringing us this week’s episode of Looking Up. One object I never tire of is our old, dependable Moon. I really love the Moon, and I love to explore the mountains, ridges, and craters through my telescopes.

  • Hal Bidlack takes a measured approach to the constellation Sextan in this week’s episode of Looking Up. As this month’s shows mark four years since I first started making Looking Up episodes, I thought today I’d so something a bit different than I have been the last 200 plus episodes.

  • This week on Looking Up Hal spotlights Bellatrix, one of his favorite stars in the constellation Orion. The mighty constellation of Orion dominates Colorado’s winter sky, and it’s a wonderful area of the sky to observe with a telescope, binoculars, or just naked eye.

  • On this New Year’s Eve edition of Looking Up Hal makes sure we don’t forget an old acquaintance – the New Horizons spacecraft. With New Years Day tomorrow, many of us will be thinking about the coming year and wondering about the new horizons we will see.

  • This week on Looking Up Hal passes along a ‘speedy’ season’s greeting of peace and love.  Well, it’s the season of peace and love, so let’s talk about a very interesting star, Wazn, in the constellation of Columba the Dove. Didn’t know there was a dove up in the sky?

  • This week on Looking Up Hal invites us to ‘check out’ a star by the name of Sheratan, conveniently located in the Colorado night sky near you. If you are ever wondering where to spend a night looking at the Colorado night sky, may I suggest stopping by the Sheratan?

  • This week on Looking Up Hal points out two planets and a star hanging relatively close together in the early December night sky. If you take a look to the west after dark, you will likely notice the bright red planet Mars gleaming in the Colorado night sky.
