Tonight's Sky for April 20: Corvus Flies South at Midnight

Tonight at midnight, the small, trapezoid-shaped constellation of Corvus the crow is due South. To find Corvus, follow the arc of the Big Dipper's handle to Arcturus, alpha Bootes, speed onto Spica (alpha Virgo), and continue the curve to Corvus, which should be easy to spot as all of its main stars are in the 2nd magnitude, albeit the dimmer half.
