After sunset this evening you’ll find two bright stars in the east. In the southeast is Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo the maiden. The very bright star far off to the left of Spica, in the northeast sky, is called Arcturus. To the Shawnee Indians, Arcturus was known as Waupee, or the White Hawk. One day Waupee saw a magical basket descend from the sky. In the basket were twelve sisters. When the basket reached earth the heavenly sisters leaped out, and linking hands, began to dance in a circle.

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower is at peak activity the next two nights. These particular meteors are bits of dust from Halley’s Comet, plunging into our atmosphere at roughly 150,000 miles an hour, where they are vaporized, heating up the air around them and causing that momentary streak of light you see in the night sky.

Face east and look up toward the top of the sky.

The quarter days of Summer and Winter are known as solstices, when the noontime sun reaches its highest or lowest altitude in the sky; while during the equinoxes of Spring and Autumn, nights and days are of fairly equal length. Now divide those seasons in half and you get cross-quarter days, the midpoints of each season. May 1st marks the cross-quarter day for Spring, called Beltane in the old Celtic calendar.
