Night Skies for May and June 2005
Venus is starting to shine bright in the evening sky starting at sunset and lasting til the end of twilight.
Saturn is high in the South West sky at sundown and sets by around 10 pm.
Jupiter is high in the South East at sundown and sets in the early morning hours and it slowly leaves the morning skies by the start of summer.
While the dim Uranus and Neptune are morning sky objects, you really need a big telescope and a sky chart or computer drive to find them rising just after midnight and half way up to the South by sunrise. Mars, however, is becoming more prominent, rising several hours before the sun in the East and making it to the South East by sunrise. Later this year Mars will be a very easy to find object in the morning and evening skies...
