will be on April 29. Here is how the evening sky will look
for the approximate middle of the U.S.A. But Astronomy Day has become a worldwide fest, and, to quote its website https://www.astroleague.org/al/astroday/astrodayform.html/, “Local astronomical societies, planetariums, museums, and observatories will be sponsoring public viewing sessions, presentations, workshops, and other activities.” Worldwide is indeed what it should be: the planet should open its compound eye on the universe of which it is part.
It will do so again on September 30, Fall Astronomy Day. Hey, why not now show that evening by way of comparison:
A month or so after the March equinox, the ecliptic, road of the moving bodies, stands steeply up from the north-hemisphere evening horizon; traveling this part of it are Mars and the three-and-a-half-day-old Moon. Orion and the other winter-night constellations have not yet disappeared.
Five months on around our orbit, we are facing the downslope of the ecliptic (inhabited by Saturn and, again, a waxing Moon), and now it is Sagittarius and the other constellations of summer nights that are on their way out. Notice (just passed by the Moon when it was at First Quarter) the “Antapex of the Earth’s Way,” at 90° from the Sun: it is where our spherical Earth is fleeing from.
