Tonight's Sky for May 13: Corvus Due South at Dark

A sign that spring is here presents itself as soon as the sky gets dark. Corvus, a small but bright trapezoid of stars that represents a cosmic crow is low and just about due South once the sky gets truly dark, about 1-1½ hours after sunset. For people with a telescope, Corvus features one of the sky's best deep sky objects: the Sombrero Galaxy. Thanks to its low position in the sky, be sure to get out and view Corvus as it won't stick around for too long.
