This has been a beautiful spring for stargazing in Seattle. The planets have been putting on an amazing show nightly (did you see the Moon and Jupiter right next to each other in last night’s sky? Wow.), and the skies have been relatively clear. Next month, it’s possible we’ll be able to see two naked-eye comets at once! Another comet, Comet Bradfield, has been visible for the last week or so, but I can’t see it from my house; trees and streetlights are in the way, and even if they weren’t I suspect the light pollution would make it impossible.
I was just outside, watching the International Space Station fly overhead, and it is amazingly warm for late April in Seattle. It feels like Summer.
