February Night Sky
It's a new month as we welcome February and the cool things it brings to the night sky...the Pleiades (the Seven Sisters), planets, the Snow Moon, and more. There's so much beauty to see when we remember to look up, even with the naked eye -- you don't have to have a telescope to appreciate the awesomeness of Nature's nights above us. Just click on the picture below for more details.
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year from the Universal Pantheist Society and welcome to 2021! We hope this is a good year for you and for our world, our planet.
Solstice Time and a 'Christmas Star'
Wishing everyone a Happy Solstice (summer for those in the southern hemisphere)! As we celebrate light and hope this new season (something we can all use especially this year!), we also have Saturn and Jupiter shining together as a 'Christmas Star.' Read all about the "great conjunction" here. It's a great time to be a pantheist and a sky watcher! Stay warm and safe as you celebrate this week.
December Night Skies
It's that time again....a new month for you sky watchers and stargazers! December is the time for the Geminids, an eclipse and, of course, Winter Solstice, and a whole lot more to see when you remember to look up at that beautiful winter sky!

Enjoy the first days of a new season, and, as always, don't forget to look up!
