Arcturus is like, the fourth brightest star one can see from Earth. It is a “red giant” and it is by far the brightest star in the north sky. Just follow / extend the curve of the Big Dipper’s handle till you see this hugely bright star!
On the other side Jupiter rules, with Saturn still close to it’s right. I can’t wait to be in more rural anchorages in the months ahead to see even more.
Get your looks of Arcturus now, because in about a million years it will become a “white dwarf” and no longer be visible with the naked eye from Earth. Plus￼, it is 37.5 light-years from us… so when we look at it tonight we are seeing it as it appeared 37.5 years ago.
