April 2014 Starwatch
From Deane Morrison University of Minnesota The sky could get pretty red in April as Mars makes its best showing of the year and the moon undergoes a total eclipse. On the April 8, Earth finally catches up to Mars in the orbital race. At that moment the sun, Earth and the Red...

January 2014 Starwatch
From Deane Morrison, University of Minnesota In January, Earth barely “laps” Jupiter in the orbital race before being lapped by Venus. Earth overtakes Jupiter on the 5th, when it glides directly between the planet and the sun. At that time Jupiter is at a point called opposition,...

June starts out with Saturn low in the south and east of Spica, the brightest star in Virgo. The two have been a pair for many months, and they move steadily toward the west as summer goes by. In the fall, both will disappear into the sunset. The bright star above Saturn is Arcturus,...

Starwatch: May 2013
After the April we've had, May has got to have clearer skies. Let's hope so, anyway. We'll need those clear skies to see Jupiter, Venus and...

August 23, 2012
As September turns summer into fall, our old friend Saturn sinks into the sun's afterglow. Left behind--for now--in the evening sky, Mars manages to avoid the same fate. But Mars is fading as it falls ever farther behind Earth in the orbital race. If you have trouble finding it...
