The starry sky is now at its best with the most prominent stars being well placed high in the south: blue Rigel and red Betelgeuse in Orion, Sirius beneath it, Procyon to its left, Pollux and Castor higher up, Capella almost in the Zenith, and Aldebaran and the Pleiades completing the splendor.
Days are getting longer and nights are getting shorter. We're also leaving the freezing cold behind. As we all love winter's benefits, we surely regret that our beloved starry skies will take a back seat soon. Therefore, after this article, see you again in August or September.
