Stargazers want skies to clear quickly behind yesterday's cold front passage. At 9:15 tonight the full Hay Moon (or Thunder Moon) rises in the east over Baltimore. Turn around to see Venus and Saturn slow-dancing in the west, less than a degree apart (the width of your pinky held at arm's length). Venus is the very bright "evening star." Far-dimmer Saturn is sliding past, just above Venus, for the next few nights. They're a treat in binoculars or a small telescope. Jupiter gleams in the southeast.
