April showers bring May flowers. They also bring frustration to observers kept indoors by April’s ever-present cloudy nights. Outer space may be out of reach, but cyberspace isn’t.

If inclement weather has you and your telescope grounded, Astronomy.com will keep you cosmically connected. There’s a lot to explore, so let’s get to our computers, log on, and see what we can find. We’ll begin with sections accessible to anyone, regardless of subscription status.
