Old Morning Moon Leaves Dark Nights for Stars, a May Meteor Shower, and Leo Lurks in the South!

(Meteors from the annual Eta-Aquariids Meteor Shower appear to be traveling away from a point in the sky in the constellation of Aquarius, the Water-Bearer, which is positioned low in the southeastern pre-dawn sky on the peak night of Sunday, May 5.)
(On Wednesday, the waning crescent moon will be situated to the right of the bright planet Venus in the pre-dawn eastern sky. Much dimmer Mercury will also be there, sitting less than a fist’s diameter to the lower left of Venus.)
( A constellation of Leo (the lion).)
