The Night Sky

  • Tuesday, April 8
  • Mars is at opposition — its closest opposition since December 2007. Mars is actually nearest to Earth on the 14th, but the difference is barely a trace. This is the month for Mars with your telescope!
  • Wednesday, April 9
  • This evening, look left of the Moon by about a fist-width at arm's length for Regulus in Leo.
  • Thursday, April 10
  • Look above the waxing gibbous Moon this evening for Regulus. The Sickle of Leo extends nearly upright from Regulus.
  • Friday, April 11
  • The waxing gibbous Moon shines under Leo tonight. Leo is where you get if you follow the pointer stars of the Big Dipper far enough backward.
  • Saturday, April 12
  • Look far lower left of the Moon this evening for fiery, glary Mars. By about midnight they're lined up horizontally in the south.
