Sky at a Glance

Ever look up in the sky and wonder what planet you're looking at or if there are any special astronomy events coming up? I just know some of the simple constellations, but I'm always intrigued by the evening sky.

The Sky and Telescope site has a nice summary called "This Week's Sky at a Glance." It summarizes the major astronomy things to see -- I guess in the Northern Hemisphere. This coming weekend the Perseid meteor shower will be at its peak and there shouldn't be much light interference from the moon. If you're out late, glance up, catch a falling star, and make a wish.
