April 2020 Night Sky

On a clear night look up and you will see plenty of fascinating objects in the sky this month - stars, constellations, the moon, bright planets, and even some meteors, if you're lucky! Observing the night sky can be done with no special equipment, thought this downloadable sky map can be helpful. 

Right now, Venus and the Pleiades star cluster are putting on a rare show. These two objects have come together in a conjunction every year, but this is an extra close one that only appears every eight years. Venus is so bright in the sky, it's hard to miss.
