During April, Leo prances high in the South after sunset, as if chasing away the win- ter stars toward the west. Spotting Leo is easy, thanks to the Sickle of stars outlining the lion's head. Framing the lion are two lovely star clusters: the Beehive to the west and Coma Berenices, or Berenice's Hair, to the east. Both are visible to the naked eye, but it takes a pair of binoculars to bring out their beauty to the fullest. A golden jewel in Virgo, Sat- urn trails Leo to the southeast. On April 3, Saturn reaches oppo- sition, the point where it is 180 degrees from the sun, as seen from Earth, and it will be up all night. Its glory rivals that of brilliant Arc- turus, now shining northeast of the ringed planet. Venus ornaments the predawn sky, but our lovely sister planet is slowly sinking into the sun's fore- glow. Try looking for it on April 1, when an old crescent moon keeps company with Venus above the eastern horizon. Late in the month, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter congregate near Venus, but will be so low they'll be hard to see On April 30, another old waning moon sits above Venus, the highest and brightest of the bunch, and in fact the only one that may be visible. But in the coming months, Mars, and espe- cially Jupiter, will start lifting high enough to spot easily. Algonquin Indians calledApril's full moon the pink moon, for the carpet of flowering ground phlox that appears in early spring. It was also known as the full sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and, in coastal areas, the flfll fish moon, as mid-April was the time of the shad spawning runs. This moon rises at about 8 p.m. on April 17, less than two hours before reaching exact tidiness. That means it will be quite round when it peeks over the horizon.
