The Sky This Month
by Rob Pettengill

Deep sky observers should check out Brian Cuthbertson's Observing Targets for May.

The first 3 weeks of May is a great time to see Mercury with it's maximum elongation on the 7th.

Saturn will be at opposition on May 22 offering the best views of the season with it's rings spanning 42 arc sec.

Best wishes and goodbye to all.  I'm moving on to a fun new project and David Lynch will take over as communications chair in June.
