Clouds may interfere, but if you're someplace tonight where stars are shining, step outside and watch the crescent moon pass close to the planet Mars, high in the west after sunset.

Better still, let the moon take you on a tour: Mars tonight; aligned with the Gemini twins (Castor and Pollux) tomorrow; Saturn and Regulus (in Leo) on the April 14 and April 15; nearly full beside the star Spica on April 19, and close to brilliant Jupiter, in the east before dawn, on April 27.
