First post -- sorry if this has been asked/answered elsewhere, but I didn't find anything searching...

I'm looking for a good daily astronomy blog announcing what's happening in the sky each night and in the near future, so I can know what to be looking for and what is coming up -- any suggestions?

Thanks.

Not detailed. So much going on up there a short post can't cover very much.

Download Stellarium and you can see what's happening any time.
