Tonight look toward the southeast around 9 p.m. to see the bright full moon low in the sky. Saturn will just above it.
Now is a good time to see one of the largest constellations in the sky and one of the few constellations that actually looks like what it is supposed to represent - Hydra the Water Snake.
The moon is always impressive, whether viewed with the naked eye or with binoculars or a small telescope. It constantly acts as a pointer to other celestial objects of interest.
Tim Hunter took this photo of Comet PANSTAARS near the crescent moon last week. He used a 135 mm lens on a Nikon digital camera.
Spring officially began Wednesday at 4:02 a.m. Tucson time. This brief moment in time is officially known as the spring or vernal equinox.
The moon will be in the east in the late afternoon sky, and grow more prominent as the sun gets lower in the west.
It is midwinter and often cold after sunset, but this is a good time to enjoy the two brightest stars in the sky - Sirius and Canopus.
Take some time tonight to enjoy the early evening winter sky, especially Orion the Hunter, which is the grandest constellation in the sky.
There is a lot to look for in the evening sky.
Now is a good time to try to find one of the largest but most challenging constellations in the sky - Eridanus the River.
If you have a clear eastern horizon, you can watch the moon rise over the horizon, always a marvelous event when viewed through a small telescope or binoculars.
The peak of the Geminid meteor shower - probably the best meteor shower of the year - should start late tonight.
Having a dark, moonless sky is fortuitous because the peak of the Geminid meteor shower is predicted to start late tonight and continue into early Friday. Now let's hope the storm expected to arrive tonight gives us a little break.
