A month of shadows

May 2005: Complementing the Moon's packed schedule of events this month, several planets, comets, asteroids, and galaxies strut their stuff.
Deep-sky observers have many splendors to see — galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters are timeless to our eyes. If you miss an object this month, rest assured, you can look for it the next. In contrast, the dynamic movements in our solar system open up a new realm of experience for the backyard astronomer. Nothing ever quite repeats, so every event is special in its own way.
