The Night Sky in May!

This is not intended to be comprehensive - it is a quick guide to help you find a few things in the night sky without any equipment - just your eyes.

All of these are very bright and easy to find when walking around the village.

I have made the following charts to help you find: -

  • The visible planets - These are very low and early morning and Mercury evening
  • The Big Dipper and finding North
  • The phases of the Moon
  • Space Station pass - 
  • The Lunar eclipse
