The Lyrids can appear anywhere in the sky, but the trail will point toward their namesake, Lyra, near the bright star Vega, about halfway between the horizon and zenith (45 degrees from the horizon) above the eastern horizon at midnight. At that same time, Jupiter will make an appearance two degrees to the lower left of the moon. Huestis recommends using a camera with a telephoto lens, a pair of binoculars, or a small telescope to enhance the view of the beautiful night sky. Another event visible using bin- oculars is when the moon passes near or through the Beehive cluster of stars, which is roughly three full moons in diameters on May 10 between sunset and midnight. Huestis said the "swarm" of stars is located in the Cancer constellations, which is barely visible to the naked eye in the dark sky. Later in spring, Jupiter and Saturn will be visible in the night sky between midnight and dawn, but Huestis said Jupiter will be best seen during open nights at local observa- tories in mid-June, and mid-July for Saturn. On the evening of May 5-6, the Eta Aquarids meteor shower, one of two meteor showers created by debris from Halley's Comet, returns. The shower is named after the brightest star in the Aquarius con- stellation, Eta Aquaril, because the meteors seem to begin from its loca- tion in the sky. Stargazers expect to see approxi- mately 45 meteors per hour during the Eta Aquarids display. Huestis said the observatory is open to all who would like assistance learning the night sky and stargazing techniques, but enjoying the stars is as easy as finding a dark area and looking up. "Keep your eyes to the skies for 2019 and always," he said.
