Not many people seek out dark skies on cold winter nights — they’re not prime skywatching time for much of anyone. But those who do find dark skies get a treat: a nice display of the Milky Way. It arcs high overhead in early to mid evening right now. It’s anchored in the southeast by Sirius, the night sky’s brightest star. It then climbs high overhead to the “horns” of Taurus, then drops toward M-shaped Cassiopeia in the north, and the tail of Cygnus, the swan, in the northwest.
