Tonight’s Sky: May 2013

In May’s “Tonight’s Sky“, Jupiter will be shining in the West after sunset.

“The best views of Jupiter will come early in the month, when it is highest in the sky… The annual Eta Aquarid meteor shower returns this month. During the peak, on the night of May 5th to 6th, expect to see up to 10 meteors per hour. Look for them shooting from the east after midnight. On May 10th, sky watchers in northern Australia and the central Pacific Ocean will be treated to an annular solar eclipse. On May 24th, a penumbral lunar eclipse will be visible to observers in most of North America, South America, western Europe, and western Africa,”

according to “Tonight’s Sky“, a monthly program produced by Hubblesite.
