So much going on in the skies - if the clouds would just let up so we could see it!

Saturn and Jupiter and going their separate ways these days, but Mercury is waiting in the wings to console us for their loss.

We've intercepted a radio transmission from Proxima Centauri - communication or not?

We're not seeing as much of the Starlink "satellite internet constellation, either, even when it's clear.  Who said what to whom to make that happen? 

And a couple of cute constellations will appear shortly in the night sky; Bob King has all the details.
