Tour May's Sky by Eye and Ear!
This month will be your absolute last chance to see Jupiter before it dips from view in the evening sky. Look for this planet’s gradually dimming beacon low in the west as soon as twilight starts to darken.
Meanwhile, even as Jupiter disappears from the evening sky, Saturn reached opposition on April 28th. That means it’s opposite the Sun in the sky, rising in the east at sunset and staying up all night long. Watch how it nudges higher in the sky at dusk as the weeks and months go by.
This is just a sample of the skywatching tips you'll hear when you download May's audio sky tour, an expertly-guided tour of the evening sky brought to you each month by the editors of Sky & Telescope.
