Minnesota Starwatch: July
From Deane Morrison As night falls, the trio of Mars, Saturn and the red star Antares comes out in the south and southwest. If you haven’t seen this sight, now’s the time to catch it. Mars is in the southwest, traveling eastward against the background of stars. On the 13th...

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...

March 1, 2013
Once again, astronomers wait with bated breath to see if a new comet will turn out to be a delight or a dud. Comet Pan-STARRS reaches maximum brightness around the 9th-10th, but it may be easiest to find on the 12th, when a thin crescent moon can help. Look west about 45 minutes...
