I’m very excited to announce my first children’s book,
Stella’s Starry Adventures ~ Winter Fun, is available on Amazon!!
This Month’s Sky
Spring always brings renewed excitement for stargazers! Warmer weather and clearer skies are here! This month we will enjoy two special Lunar events. On the night of May 10, between 10 pm and 11 pm, the Crescent Moon passes through the middle of the Beehive star cluster (Illustraion1)!
We will have a Blue Moon on May 18th! The true explanation of a Blue Moon is when we have four Full Moons in one season, the third is called a Blue Moon. We will continue to see Mars in the west after sunset (Illustration 2). Jupiter and Saturn shine in the southern predawn sky (Illustration 3).
For our hike, we will begin around 9:30pm. Let’s grab our jacket, Starry Trail Map and binoculars. We can still enjoy a few more hikes without mosquitoes! We will start by facing west.
