Published on May 1, 2017
On a clear night, you can see 2.5 million light-years away with just your eyes. With the naked eye you can see bright stars, constellations, and you can identify planets.
The sky above us is full of amazing things that incite wonder...
the stars, the moon, the planets and the vastness of it all.
Make a journey to the wonders of the Cosmos.

Jupiter, Moon and the bright star Spica May 7.
Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system, has a celestial date
with the moon on May 7th offering a lovely night sky view.

Full 'Flower Moon' - May 10
The full moon of May, also known as the Flower Moon or Milk Moon, will occur Wednesday (May 10) at 542 p.m. EDT (2142 GMT). It will appear full to the casual observer for about a day before and after.

Saturn, Moon and the red giant star Antares May 12.
Triple Play! See Saturn, Antares and the Moon Rendezvous on May 12th.

Look for Vega in your Northeastern sky on May 13th.
Vega is the fifth brightest star in the sky.
The sky’s Summer Triangle returns to prominence this month.
The asterism’s three bright stars — Vega in Lyra, Deneb in Cygnus, and Altair in Aquila — all clear the horizon by midnight local daylight time.

Venus and Mercury before sunrise May 17

Moon, Venus and Mercury 1 hour before sunrise on May 21-23

New Moon May 25 - Year's Closest Supermoon
In addition to creating ideal conditions for stargazing, the new moon on May 25 also will mark the closest lunar approach of the year. Called perigee, the new moon will sit at a distance of 222,500 miles from Earth. According to EarthSky, this marks the first time since 2009 that the new moon, and not a full moon, coincides with the year's closest perigee.
