Tonight's Sky for April 29: Antares on the Rise


We may not even be all the way into spring, but the stars of summer are coming around in the predawn sky. The most distinctive of them all, perhaps, is Antares, the red supergiant that is the alpha star of the Zodiac constellation of Scorpius. To see Antares, look low in the Southern predawn sky about 2 hours before sunrise, there's no other star quite like it.
