Northern winter is finally over, so don't just sit there — head outside and do some stargazing.

Low in the west, Jupiter has disappeared from view and the celestial tableau of Orion, Taurus, and company will soon be gone for the season as well.

But turn around to the east, and you'll be greeted by the steady light of Saturn, which will grace our evening skies for several months. All around and above Saturn are the constellations of spring, led by Leo, the Lion.

Get the lowdown on these sky sights and on how to spot bright seasonal stars and constellations by downloading April's audio sky tour. It's a 4-megabyte MP3 file that's 7½ minutes long.
