This year, stars get most of the attention, since all but one of the bright planets are now clustered in the predawn sky. Luckily, the lone bright eve- ning planet is Saturn. Coming out in the east after sundown, the majestic orb traverses the night sky above the bright star Spica, in Virgo. Its rings are tilted only about eight degrees from horizon- tal, but through a telescope the planet's golden color never fails to delight. Two other bright stars accom- pany Saturn in its journey. To the northwest, Regulus, the heart of Leo, anchors the Sickle of stars around the lion's head. And to the northeast, brilliant Arcturus leads its kite-shaped constellation, Boo- tes the ploughman (or herdsman), across the sky. Just east of Bootes hangs Corona Borealis, the northern crown. Its brightest star, Alph- ecca, also called Gemma, sets off this celestial tiara. Moving east once more, we come to the upside- down form of Hercules with its sig- nature hourglass of stars. Looking to the north, the Big Dipper "spills its water" down toward the Little Dipper. On the other side of the Big Dipper (between its bowl and Leo) see if you can find three evenly spaced pairs of stars known as the Three Leaps of the Gazelle. If each pair of stars is a landing spot, it appears the lion-leery gazelle leapt along a line heading northwest from a spot just above Leo's hindquar- ters. In the morning sky, Venus is slowly sinking, Mars and Jupiter are ascending and Mercury pops in for a short visit. All four planets will be up by about half an hour before sunrise, but besides tak- ing place at an unearthly hour, the spectacle unfolds so close to the horizon that it will be hard to v \\; --.n \\; CORONA  AIphecca \\;..

By the end of the month, however, Jupiter will have climbed high enough to see and Mars, ascending in Jupiter's wake, may be marginally visible. Mercury's foray into the pre- dawn sky may not dazzle us, but new images of the tiny planet from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft are making a splash. They show the planet's heavily cratered sur- face and mysterious deposits near its north pole. Among other ques- tions, astrophysicists hope MES- SENGER will shed light on how Mercury, which has a large, metal- rich core, came to be the dens- est planet and why Mercury and Earth possess magnetic fields while neighbors Venus and Mars do not. The Milky Way hugs the hori- zon during evenings in May. But if you stay up and watch until 1 or 2 a.m., you'll see it lift up in the east and move westward behind the spring constellations. Algonquin Indians knew May's full moon as the flower moon, the corn planting moon or the milk moon. It shines the night of the 16th-17th and will be closest to perfect fullness when it sets at 5:24 a.m. The University of Minnesota offers public viewings of the night sky at its Duluth and Twin Cities campuses.

New Hutchinson Arts Center Public invited to explore new Hutchinson Arts Center The curtain is about to rise on the new Hutchinson Center for the Arts.
