Winter

The Spring Night Sky

The nights are getting shorter and this heralds the beginning of spring.

During Spring 2018, there will be a number of bright planets on show.

At this time of year there will not be any major meteor showers, though the April Lyrids can put on a show some years.

To make up for this, this time of year is traditionally known as 'Galaxy Season'. This is because a number of constellations are visible for most of the night that contain one or more galaxies.
