According to NASA, about 45 minutes after sunset on May 2, if people look west in the sky, they can see the planet Mercury there. A thin crescent moon can also be seen exactly 10 degrees away from it. Not only this, people can see Aldebaran, a giant star, which will shine like the planet Mercury, when the moon is turned slightly south. NASA has told that people will be able to see Mercury with naked eyes in the evening till the month of August.
Also, in the last week of May, Jupiter and Mars will come increasingly close to each other in the sky. These can be seen from 28 to 30 May. People can also use binoculars, after which they will get a chance to see even the largest moons of Jupiter.
However, the most important thing of this month will be the lunar eclipse. According to NASA, people in America, Europe and Africa will be able to see a spectacular lunar eclipse in mid-May. Unlike a solar eclipse, a lunar eclipse can be seen directly with the eyes. It can also be seen with the help of binoculars. During a full lunar eclipse, the moon turns red in colour.
The last to be seen is the Coma star cluster. Binoculars would be needed to see it, as it is located about 300 light-years away. The Coma Star Cluster is a group of 40-50 stars. Of these, the brightest star forms a Y shape.
