This year, October's most spectacular show probably will be an old friend: the full hunter's moon. When that moon rises on Oct. 18, it will...

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...

The lion may seem a more suitable symbol for March, but it's in April that Leo makes its best showing. And this year, so does Saturn. Look high...

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...

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...

Starwatch: Fall season brings new viewing opportunities
Take advantage of the clear, crisp nights to watch October's celestial show. Headliners this year are Mars and the moon. About two hours before dawn on the 1st, grab your binoculars and look to the east. You'll see the bright star Regulus, in Leo, and above and slightly to its right...

Starwatch: Summer's ending brings new stars
The end of summer brings the laid-back water constellations into the evening sky and gives us our last good look at the stars of Scorpius and Sagittarius. Those two constellations move from south to southwest during August. Scorpius, slithering across the southern horizon, leads...

Starwatch: November repeat would be keen
Let's hope this November is as clear and beautiful as last year's, especially when the annual Leonid meteor shower comes around. Whether it turns out to be spectacular or not, this year we'll have to rise early to get the best view of it. The Leonids radiate from the head of Leo,...
