Saturn's display lasts all night

April 2010: April heralds excellent views of Mercury and Venus together in the evening twilight.
April 2010 Venus finder chart
Venus points to Mercury in early April, serving as a helpful guide to the innermost planet. Then, in late April, Venus passes a few degrees south of the Pleiades star cluster (M45).
Astronomy: Roen Kelly
For many in the Northern Hemisphere, early April ushers in the first warm days of spring. This year, the warmer weather ­heralds excellent views of Mercury and Venus together in the evening twilight. High in the south, Mars commands attention as the brightest object in Cancer the Crab. And as the sky darkens, Saturn climbs in the eastern sky and remains visible all night.
