What's Up for May. Spring constellations yield science targets you can see.
Hello and welcome. I'm Jane Houston Jones at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
May is a great month to see a lovely collection of constellations with your own eyes and view objects studied by NASA spacecraft and telescopes.
Use the moon to help locate the constellations this month.
On May 13 the crescent moon is between the 'feet' of the Gemini twins. The stars Pollux and Castor mark the heads of the twins.
