The Moon Dance
Morning planets: Venus, the planet of love, is vis-
ible with difficulty in the eastern morning sky.
Evening planets: Jupiter is visible in the western
evening sky after sunset, Saturn rises in the late
evening in the constellation Libra, and Mars is
visible all evening for most of the month and is
on the planet¡¯s closest approach to the Earth for
the next 2 years.
* Apr 15: Total Lunar Eclipse. Occurs when the
Moon passes through the Earth¡¯s dark shadow, or
umbra. During this type, the Moon will gradually
get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red
color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most
of North America, South America, and Australia.
* Apr 22,23: Lyrids Meteor Shower, an average
shower, about 20 meteors/hour at peak, annually
from Apr 16-25, These can sometimes produce
bright dust trails that last for several seconds.
Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra,
but can appear anywhere in the sky.
* April 29: Annular Solar Eclipse. Occurs when
the Moon is too far away from the Earth to
completely cover the Sun. This results in a ring of
light around the darkened Moon.
