Mercury : Mercury : Mercury has returned to the morning sky and rises a little later than Venus.

Venus : Venus : Venus is currently appearing as the Morning Star. Not very high and not rising much before the Sun.

Mars : Mars : Mars fading and shrinking now and sinking in the southwest as it gets dark.

Jupiter : Jupiter : Not really worth looking for Jupiter this month as it goes to superior conjunction at the far side of the Sun.

Saturn : Saturn : Saturn came to opposition on May 10th down in Libra. A bit low in altitude but at least the rings are wide open so its still a nice sight.

Meteors : No major showers this month.
