The intuitive mind is a sacred gift; the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have generated a society that honors the Servant and forgotten the Gift”.                 Albert Einstein


What’s that in the sky?

For all you night owls

Venus is quickly following the Sun down below the horizon and soon she will be so close to the sun she is invisible to our eyes.

Let the Moon be your guide tonight on the 1st May when she will be just above Mars. The white star is Regulus and the reddish one is Mars.

Get ready to aim your binoculars or telescope towards the Moon on the 4th May as she will be next to Spica and just above Saturn. It’s always easier to see the Moons craters when she is NOT Full.

As night falls the clearly visible and magnificent Scorpion will rise in the eastern sky and move overheard all night. And he will finally start his dive into the western horizon as the Sun rises in the morning. 


For all you early birds

You may be lucky early this month to see Mercury. He will make a fleeting visit in the eastern sky just before the sun rises and he disappears from view. He travels close to the Sun and as a result his visits are quick. That’s why the ancients knew him as the “winged messenger”.
