Eastertime Celestial Show

Celestial showtime!

There will be a fantastic planetary showing this weekend!  Right after sunset just walk outside and look just above where the sun set down.  You'll get a great view of Venus and Mercury.  You can read the entire article from NASA Science news below.  If you like cool science stuff go ahead and subscribe while you are there.

From Nasa Science News:

March 31, 2010: The solar system's innermost planets are about to put on a beautiful show. This week, Mercury is emerging from the glare of the sun and making a beeline for Venus. By week's end, the two planets will be just 3o apart, an eye-catching pair in the deep-blue twilight of sunset. The best nights to look are April 3rd and 4th. Go outside at the end of the day and face west. Venus pops out of the twilight first, so bright it actually shines through thin clouds. Mercury follows, just below and to the right: sky map.

Venus is an old friend to most sky watchers; Mercury, less so. The first planet from the sun spends most of its time wrapped in painful sunlight. Seeing it so easily, and in the beautiful company of Venus no less, is a rare treat indeed. The next apparition this good won't come until Nov. 2011.

"1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

 2 Now the earth was [a] formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.

Genesis 1:1-3

I love this stuff... I can just imagine Abram looking at a star filled sky with NO light wash whatsoever... it must have been spectacular and to put myself in his shoes trying to imagine that many sons and daughters coming... thanks for sharing. I grew up next to a Professor of Astronomy. He told us for years how lucky we were to live to see Halley's Comet and how great it will be... he didn't make it to see it... but then neither did the comet in our hemisphere. At least not like he built it up to be. He did give us kids in the neighborhood a real interest in the night skies. I can't wait to go sit on our sundown swing to watch the show! Thanks again.
