Great Balls Of Fire

The best time to view Antares is on or around May 31 of each year, when the star is at "opposition" to the Sun. At this time, Antares rises at dusk and sets at dawn, and is thus in view all night. This of course depends entirely on your own position on the globe.

Anonymous you took my post ;-) I have to concur that well star gazing is amazing during certain aspects of the year and certain changes in our galaxy. Bird watching/studying is an everyday activity for some to enjoy!!Over and over and over.. Whisper, whisper!!
