Where the best stargazing in Guangzhou? Guangzhou viewing points recommended
In amateur astronomy group, there is an interesting "gang" called "the balcony to help." As the name suggests, is home balcony expand the Star Friends observations. Many people will ask, in the Galaxy blanking of the city, but also to see what the stars? Just as the "balcony Gang" who pursued the urban sky is also very impressive.
Starchaser perennial amateur astronomers Weiguo told reporters that the sky is not too familiar with the general public, beginning from the moon and planets observation, is a good choice. Eight planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Venus and Mercury will be able to observable with the naked eye. Among them, Mercury is the closest planet in the sun, but also the Five Elements five planets visible to the naked eye the most difficult to see. The reason is that Mercury and the sun away recently been overwhelmed by the sun's rays, only Mercury and the sun away from the largest public have a chance to witness hosting the Games to Mercury. If the aid of a telescope, one can see Saturn's rings and moons of Jupiter. Earth's neighbor can see a real, if suddenly narrowed the space, think about all that is a fun thing.
Although the planet is relatively easy to find, the naked eye, then some of the brightest star is not difficult to find. "Of course, spring is Regulus, the summer is fire and Cowboy, Vega, Deneb, nothing really bright stars fall, winter can be found Sirius and Canopus." Weiguo said, the familiar Polaris, the four seasons can see to. Polaris where Ursa, also can be observed throughout the year.
Ecliptic: Earth's orbit around the sun plane intersects the circle with the celestial sphere is formed. That is looking at the Earth, the sun between the inner stellar year are taking, as the path.
Celestial equator: Earth's equatorial plane expanded to large circle intersects with the celestial sphere is formed.
Magnitude: represents the strength of the celestial bodies relative brightness levels. Generally spoken refers luminance magnitude apparent magnitude, i.e. observed from the earth to the celestial body.

Guangzhou viewing points recommended
Apo Six: high altitude bring high transparency
Conghua named "Apo Six" is a small village amateur astronomers who haunts. Here away from the light intensity at the expense of ride is relatively far away, it takes about two hours from the city.
However, other ideal observation point compared to the regular activities of astronomy enthusiasts, there has been a recent count. Countryside scenery and pleasant land, to meet the "Deep Space School" and "visual school" apart, local Hoshino also more suitable for landscape photography and astronomy.
Nankunshan: logistics secure a good environment
If you want to pursue quality of observations, not like "hardcore" gamers harm so sensitive to light, Nankunshan is a good choice. And six almost lady from the city go about Nankunshan takes about two hours, drove up the mountain but also take some time.
Nankunshan advantage is that the logistics thoughtful and early development of local tourism, hotels, hostels, bed and breakfasts and other spread. Outdoor stargazing tired, backed by a relatively open environment of the hotel, all the better.
Luhu days: good scenery convenient transportation
If not care about the influence of light pollution, the observation target is not deepsky more sensitive to light, then the day Luhu Park urban drive distance of about one hour can be taken into account. The biggest advantage of course is the day Luhu Park are close, convenient transportation, but also in tourism oxygen observation apart. Allegedly shot deep sky objects in the sky Luhu area, barely able to work something out. Who lived in the vicinity of the shooting enthusiasts on a lot of pictures.
Guangzhou Tower: financial landmark in a furnace with Xinggui
Guangzhou Tower to the nearby city landmarks and take pictures financial Xinggui in a furnace, there are a lot of people tried.

From the position that the north tower to see Guangzhou, Xinggui center in that position, and secondly, there and from Guangzhou tower more appropriate.
White Yunshan: photographing scenery as contemplated
If you still feel far away, around the Baiyun Mountain is also possible. Because from the city center close to Baiyun Mountain, that want to see faint objects more difficult, but the photo shoot astronomical scenery is nice place. In the viewing platform near the tiger rock, shot up in commanding momentum, and look a thousand miles of visual experience.
