April Sky Watch Report with Mr. Lutken
Posted 04/01/2019 10:00AM

 

Sky Watch April 2019 .............

April is here and that means wind, thunder, rain, dust, and sunshine......sometimes all in one day!

Evening skies:  This is a great time of year to see the Big Dipper circling the northern sky.  

Use the pointer stars (the two at the front of the cup) to find the North Star, or follow the arc of the Dipper's handle south to the bright star Arcturus, the Bear Hunter. (diagrams from EarthSky below)

Full Moon on the 19th, right before Easter.

Morning skies: Great planets...Jupiter is the "morning star" in the south followed by Saturn and then Venus low in the Southeast. All line up along the plane of the ecliptic. 

The Summer Triangle is overhead now, coming up earlier every day!

Quarry in March: Geese, Kingfishers, lots of Woodpeckers and a fast flying Sharp-Shinned Hawk!

Violets and Redbuds are blooming in the woods ...

Lots to see, so head outside, take a break.......look, and listen!
