The Night Sky this month 2012 © by Dr Jamie Love This month we have a meteor shower but before we get to that, let's do some star gazing! April is often associated with birth so I thought that the "birth of stars" would be an appropriate theme for the April Night Sky this Month. The April night sky displays a variety of young star in various stages of infancy. The Great Nebula of Orion is our nearest star nursery. This famous star cluster is often called "The Seven Sisters" because on a clear night a person with average vision can make out seven stars in the Pleiades. Starting next month the Pleiades, then the Hyades and eventually the Great Nebula of Orion will become lost in the glow of the setting Sun. Oh, I almost forgot to mention this month's meteor shower! This month long ago . . . On the 2nd of April 1845 the first photo of the Sun was taken. Frank Drake began Project Ozma, the first search for extraterrestrial radio transmissions, on April 11th 1960. Wishing you "Clear skies!" Dr Jamie Love
