Stargazing for Coalition Forces

Space.com has a nifty stargazing guide available for soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The main story comes with some awesome links to further star-watching-themed sites.

Perhaps not so surprising, the skies above the Middle East will offer different views this year, including the Occultation of the Pleiades and a partial solar eclipse in March.

All of this comes following a letter to Space.com from a US Army Chaplain named Chris Wallace, who wrote to ask for some tips on stargazing he could pass along to the soldiers.

Check it out. And pass it along to someone serving overseas...
