May : Jupiter is at opposition on the 9th so it will be at it’s brightest, however views are excellent for most of the month. Venus is getting higher in the afternoon sky and becomes the “evening star” once again. Saturn & Mars continue to brighten. Comet lovers will also enjoy C/2016 M1 (Panstarrs) which approaches the Sagittarius region, which is also full of targets like Lagoon, Omega & Triffid.
