Observations

Daily cosmobite: stars in the north

The constellation of Virgo with the adjacent constellation of Corvus. Looking north in the early evening we see Spica, the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo the Maiden, very high in the sky directly in front of us. Don’t confuse Spica with the planets Mars and Saturn, which are to its right or east. Below and a little to the right or east of Spica we find the reddish star Arcturus.
