Venus, Jupiter and Mercury are all visible in the night sky around the end of this month, and they are moving toward their closest conjunction for nearly a decade. The three planets fit within a 5-degree sliver of the sky starting Friday and through Wednesday. They won't be bunched as closely together as they will on Sunday night until 2021, according to EarthSky.org. Look to the north-northwest horizon about 40 minutes after sunset, EarthSky suggests. Around this time of year, that means a little after 9 p.m. in Baltimore, with sunset getting close to 8:30 p.m. Wondering which planet is which when you look?

Growing old with dignity is the theme of Sally Darnowsky's "Twilight, with Roses," and, for the most part, it is receiving dignified treatment at the Avalon Players, where the script is the first entry in the 10th annual Baltimore Playwrights Festival.Much of the credit for the proper tone belongs to Dickens Warfield, who plays the lead role of Grace Valeria, an elderly, twice-widowed, retired nurse.When her young physician and dearest friend, competently played by Bill Rucker, engages a live-in practical nurse to care for her, he tells the nurse that Grace is special.

N - If you've been spending time in proximity to teenage girls recently, there's a strong chance you've heard about "New Moon" and Edward Cullen. Edward is the undead hero of the best-selling young adult fantasy/romance "Twilight" series. He's reached heartthrob status in a major way, and he's done it while refusing to devour, or sleep with, the story's heroine. And now "New Moon," the second book in the series, is coming to a movie theater near you. The "Twilight" books, written by Stephenie Meyer, have been heralded as the next "Harry Potter."

Read Streeters have been vigorously debating a Utah bookstore's decision to remove Stephenie Meyer's immensely popular Twilight series from its shelves. Some say the Desert Book, which is owned by the Mormon church and deals mainly in religious texts, was justified in screening the books available to young readers. And though Meyer is a Mormon - arguably the most famous Mormon author - her tales of vampires and werewolves would never be mistaken for traditional Christian literature. One reader said: "Twilight encourages young women to accept abusive behavior, condone a lifestyle that includes killing and her message to leave your husband because you're 'bored' is outrageous.

Washington - "She's not what you expect as the lead in Twilight," says Kristen Stewart, of, really, herself, playing Bella Swan, the high school girl who falls in love with a vampire, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), in the movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novel (opening Friday nationwide). "She's not your typical damsel in distress. She really is a woman."

With its mature themes, rueful humor, sleek look and cast of gracefully aging stars, "Twilight" is a harbinger of spring as welcome as the first robin, announcing that movie theaters are once again safe for grown-ups. At least until Memorial Day.It would be dishonest to describe "Twilight" in superlative terms. It's not a work of genius or great depth or devastating style or bravura performances. It's just a modest, quietly good contemporary film noir that evokes the middling thrillers of the 1940s, even as it meditates on the narcissism and selfishness of modern-day Los Angeles.

Fresh off close brushes with a comet and an asteroid last month, the planet is up for a close view of the Comet PANSTARRS as it passes by Earth. It could be visible with the naked eye or at least with binoculars. Such an opportunity arises only about once every 5-10 years, according to NASA, though there will be two such chances this year. This time, the comet in sight is one discovered in 2011, known officially as comet 2011 L4 (PANSTARRS), named for the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System in Hawaii that first spotted it. The comet has been in view for the southern hemisphere for the past year and a half, but is shifting into view for the northern hemisphere starting next week.

Seems like the “Twilight” folks saved the worst for last. “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,” the last of five films adapting author Stephenie Meyer's best-selling tales of vampires, werewolves and teen lust, was lauded as the worst picture of 2012 at Saturday night's 33 rd annual Razzie Awards. Although the preceding four “Twilight” films had frequently been nominated for Razzies, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, arbiters of cinematic bad taste since 1980, had largely left the incredulously successful film series alone.

Shannon Sharpe remembers vividly the late-night conversations in his kitchen with a 25-year-old Ray Lewis. It was 2000, and the young linebacker was staying with his new Ravens teammate in Sharpe's Atlanta home as he endured a murder trial that could have cost him his career and freedom. Even during those most trying times, Sharpe noted, the young man steered conversation to his future, to greatness. Not excellence, which Lewis had already achieved, but lasting, stamp-on-the-game greatness.

Before we move on to other business, we need to savor that baseball epic on Sunday, when the duende visited the Orioles in Fenway Park. The duende is from the realm of the metaphysical, a certain something that rises from dark corners to imbue flamenco dancers, singers and athletes with perfect skill and grace under pressure. I think I know it when I see it, and I saw it with the Orioles in Boston. I've presented this theory of the duende at work sparingly over the years. To do otherwise - to suggest its presence in a wishful way, without certainty - risks diminishing its meaning.

The U.S. is about to become one big Twilight zone. That is, if it isn't already. With more than 8.5 million copies sold in this country - and 17 million worldwide - Stephenie Meyer's four-volume tale of vampire love among the high-school set is already a bona fide cultural force, especially among the young girls who hang on its every word. But tonight, with the midnight premiere in select theaters of Twilight, based on the first book of the series, the mania may really go big time. "It's just a big mixture of all this drama and romance," said 12-year-old Leia Cunningham, a student at Hereford Middle School who was one of about 50 teen and preteen girls attending a movie prerelease party Saturday at Borders Books in Timonium.

The guys of "Twilight" are coming to Baltimore, and Vanessa Strickler is stoked. "I'm expecting total chaos," says Strickler, one of hundreds of "Twilight" fans expected to converge on the Sheraton Inner Harbor for this weekend's "Twilight" fan convention. "I want to enjoy every minute. " Before anyone jumps to conclusions, it should be made clear that Strickler is no star-struck middle-schooler with pictures of Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner taped to the inside of her locker.
