This Month’s Sky
Spring has finally sprung, and our four brightest planets are blooming!! Whether you are a night owl or early bird, when you look up, you should spot a planet or two! For the next four months, our brightest planets will be at their best! May belongs to the king of the planets, Jupiter. Jupiter rises in the southeast as the Sun sets, so it rules the night sky from dusk to dawn! (Illustration 1) Venus continues to shine brilliantly in the west, early evening sky. Saturn and Mars rise after midnight (Illustration 2).
For our hike, we will begin around 9:30pm. Let’s grab our jacket, Starry Trail Map and binoculars.
