View Full Version : Selling RVs with astronomy

Has anybody else noticed a TV ad that uses astronomy to sell RVing?

I've seen it only once, so I may have some of the details wrong, but it features a father and son under a dark sky. The father points out Orion and the North Star by pointing to two things rather close together in azimuth and altitude.

I suppose that since Orion is a winter constellation they must be vacationing in Arizona or Florida, but I think there should be about 95 degrees difference in Azimuth and 110 degrees difference in altitude between the two objects.

At least they weren't using a Tasco scope.
