Night Sky Tour May 22-30, 2012

Locate Venus, Mars & Saturn in the night sky! While I have the location set for New Orleans for those going to UAC, these planets are visible everywhere! (Times will be the same in your location if you are on daylight savings time, they will be an hour later if you are not.) Mars is east of Regulus and Saturn is above Spica. Venus sets soon after the sun. So look up and find Venus before she dissapears into the sunset on her way to inferior conjunction.

If you want to learn more about this rare transit of Venus on June 5th/6th that won't happen again for another 105.5 years come to my lecture at UAC on Saturday at 4:30!
