STARRY NIGHT

Late Spring

 

Greetings Stargazers!

It has been a toasty Spring so far here in SW Florida! As we work our way through May, we bid a fond farewell to all of our favorite winter sky objects including Orion, Taurus, and the Pleiades cluster.

This Spring, Leo, Virgo, and Ursa Major are high in the sky and always fun to see in their entirety. A favorite target is the Beehive Cluster, M44 in Cancer. It is interesting to note, that we currently have a gap period in the evening sky with no planets visible. We won't have any to see on our tour until late Aug when Venus returns as the Evening Star. During this time we will explore the wealth of other objects available including double stars, globular clusters, and on dark nights, a chance to see a distant galaxy or group!

Looking forward, Summer is right around the corner and with it we anticipate the arrival of the Summer Triangle, Vega, Cygnus, and Sagittarius where the center of our galaxy resides!

There are always amazing things to see if you take the time to look up and explore!
