The May Night Sky: Venus, Jupiter and brighter-than-usual Mercury put on spectacular shows late in the month. They gather in the
northwest on May 24 about 45 minutes after sunset, forming a rough triangle and then change positions over the next few nights.
Saturn shines nearly all night long, high in the southeast after sunset. The Aquarid meteor shower peaks the night of May 5/6.
