A ccessweather, comi. " , Two prominent kings are gracing our spring sky, the king of all beasts, Leo, the Lion, and the king of the planets, Jupiter. They are close enough so that if you have one in your sight, the other one will also be there. Finding Jupiter could not be easier, even in a city environment. Jupiter rises in the , about one hour before the sun sets. As twilight descends, Jupiter is the most prominent sky object other than the waxing crescent moon gaining eminent the west. After 9:00 p.m. blue Spica, the brightest luminary of Virgo the Virgin, will be found below Jupiter. To Jupiter's left, but three times the Jupi Spica distance will be orangey Arcturus of Bootes, the Herdsman. It is the fourth brightest star of the night, but still only 1/10th of Jupiter's luster. Looking at SpiO Arcturus, you 11 fiotice them twinkling more vigorously than Jupiter. Planets shine with a steadier light because they have disks which are less affected b'y atmosph turbulence. Stars are points of light no matter how greatly they are magnified. Shining with a steadier light and coupled with their brightness make distinguishing pl0J from stars easy. Above and to Jupiter's right is the "Sickle" or backwards question mark that delineates the mane and head of the other king gracing the spring sky, i the Lion. Below and to the left of the head are the three stars that mark the Lion's hind quarters. They stand out only because of the paucity of other bright stars in area. Four thousand years ago, the Egyptians noted that the sun reached its highest position in this area of the sky. They believed that the heat of summer was the re of Leo's stars and the sun combining their influences. What better star pattern than a lion to envision such power? www.astronomy.org , I I I i, I I ]IH II I Ill I] Of Tastel Catering by Margarita, Com- fort Cuisine, Dessus Haut Chocolate and The Best Cook- ie are a few of the presenters that will be showing off their dessert and hers d'oeuvre cre- ations at the Eastern Panhan- dle Free Clinics "Extravagan- za of Taste" gala to be held at Stonebridge Country Club in Martinsburg on Friday, May 6, at 8pm.
