From Wednesday until the week-end (May 19-22) watch the beautiful crescent Moon after sunset as it passes by Mars, Regulus and Saturn.

Aim your binoculars at the Moon on Wednesday evening and look just 5 below the lunar crescent for the delightful Beehive open cluster (a.k.a. Messier 44).

Time for outreach, anyone?

nothing more to see. please move along.
