Mercury : Not easy to see this month, low down in the south east pre-dawn sky at the start of the month, then getting too close to the sun at the end

Venus : Venus is currently appearing as the Morning Star. Not very high but too bright to miss.

Mars : Mars comes to Opposition in Virgo on April 8th so visible for most of the night

Jupiter : Jupiter is well past opposition, but still high up and shining brightly in Gemini.

Saturn : Saturn has switched to the morning sky and now lurks down in Libra.

Meteors : Lyrids are April's treat, peaking on the 22nd. The moon will be out of the way until about 3am
