Sky Watch/May 2017
Thunderstorms booming.......Cottonwood seeds like snow on the wind..... Swifts and Swallows returning.....May is here!
Spring stars are high: The Big Dipper, Arcturus, Leo the Lion. Jupiter is the brightest object in the evening sky. It's up almost all night near Spica.
Full Moon on the 10th.
Venus is the brilliant morning star in the east, not far ahead of the sun. Saturn is in the south, rising around midnight near Scorpio.
April at the Quarry:

Take a break and head outside when you can.......PKL
