Morning Moon meets Bright Planets, Mars Attacks a Star Cluster, and Some Easy Dark Sky Galaxies!

( This week the waning gibbous moon will have encounters with the two bright, gas giant planets Jupiter and Saturn. )
( On Sunday evening, May 19, Mars’ eastward orbital motion will carry it close past the bright star cluster designated as Messier 35. Binoculars will show the cluster and Mars once the sky has darkened. )
( The constellation of Leo, the Lion is in ther western evening sky, as shown here at 10 pm local time. )
( If you draw an imaginary line across the Big Dipper’s bowl and continue it beyond the star Dubhe, you’ll arrive at the pair of spiral galaxies known as Bode’s Nebula. )
