We’ll see a darker sky this week which will mean we see better conditions for stargazing.
The reason for the darker sky is because the New Moon arrives at 10:31 p.m. Sunday night.
With a darker sky, you might be able to see our home galaxy. The Milky Way is a river of light that stretches across the night sky. It’s made up of stars, gas & dust.
Early risers could see it if they’re far enough from the city lights. Look in the southern sky after 4 a.m.
The moon has a date with the Red Planet later this week. On Friday night, a young Crescent Moon will hang just below Mars. Look in the west after sunset.
