Southern Skywatch April 2011 Edition Up
The April edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.
The bright planets accumulate in the morning sky late in April, for some amazing lineups,
Mercury Mars and Jupiter join Venus for an extended planet dance.
Venus is now a gibbous shape in small telescopes. Venus meets up with the crescent Moon twice this month.
Saturn is at opposition, when it is biggest and brightest as seen from Earth. Saturn is now an excellent telescopic object in the evening rising at Sunset.
Sorry about Southern Skywatch being late, But with family visitors, having to move my lab at short notice (see image) and having the powerpack to my laptop die rather spectacularly, things kind of got away from me.
