s Sky for April 16-17: The Moon and the Kings



 April 16


April 17

Tonight and tomorrow night, the Moon will be meeting up with a pair of celestial kings. Tonight, the Moon will be parked right next to Regulus, the blue alpha (brightest) star of zodiac constellation Leo the Lion. Perhaps because it is the heart of the lion, Regulus is known as “the King Star” even though is is nowhere near being the brightest star in the sky. Tomorrow night, Luna will be parked right next to Jupiter, king of the planets, too.
