Staring at the sky

I spend a fair amount of time in the evening escorting the dogs around the yard. The view upwards is often more interesting than the opposite. Sky and Telescope magazine’s web site keeps me informed of what I’m seeing up there, helping me keep Aldebaron and Saturn straight. Tommorrow, Monday, I’m informed that “Mars reaches its most southerly declination of the year (ö23.6¡).” Check it out: you can enter your location and the “Sky at a Glance” link will tell you what there is to see.
