I notice that for the next couple of weeks there will be an opportunity for gazers to see mercury venus mars jupiter saturn and the moon all lined up around dusk. It will be 30 years until this happens again I read. I know I can count on one hand how many eclipses I've seen. So many people never get to know their neighbors but in astronomical terms I'm looking forward to meeting mine! Big Grin

That's the best reason to try and make it out to see this parade of planets. I'm not sure just how unusual it is, but Mercury and Venus reach their greatest elongations from the Sun on about the same day, too.

This weekend's events at Carol Ann Cross Park (see calendar) will focus on the planets and moon, April 17th we'll see four of the five again, and on May 21 OR 22 we'll find two comets to add to three planets. All these events are Night Sky Network events at Carol Ann Cross Park in Ft Smith, on 74th Street about 1 mile N of Rogers at St Edwards Hospital.
