astronomical wonders that are currently on display overhead. let's see what's happening in the sky from monday, may 27, to sunday, june 2. a half-hour after sunset on monday, jupiter, venus, and mercury form a very tight triangle low in the west. they form a jagged line on tuesday, and the line gets longer each evening for the rest of the week, as jupiter sinks lower and mercury rises higher. jupiter and venus are just a finger width apart on monday and tuesday -- a splendid view through binoculars. and telescopes will show both planets' discs, as well as jupiter's moons. later on, as the sky grows fully dark, virgo, the maiden, is stage center in the south. its only truly bright star is spica, but this year spica has
4:28 pm
an even brighter companion -- the planet saturn. virgo's other prominent feature is the upraised arm ending at vindemiatrix, her second-brightest star. virgo is an agricultural constellation. "spica" means "spike of wheat," and "vindemiatrix" means "grape gatherer." to stargazers with telescopes, virgo is famous for the virgo cluster, a collection of roughly 1,000 galaxies between vindemiatrix and denebola, the tail of leo the lion. of course, the galaxies aren't literally between these stars. denebola is 36 light years away, and vindemiatrix is 100 light years. the galaxies, by contrast, are 50 million to 60 million light years from earth. but even that's dwarfed by an object called 3c 273, which appears not far below the virgo cluster.
4:29 pm
this is the brightest quasar in the sky, and the most distant object that's easy to see through a typical backyard telescope... two billion light years away. a quasar is a supermassive black hole that's consuming gas at a furious rate. roughly half the material spirals into the black hole and is lost from the universe as we know it. the other half is ejected as high-speed jets, emitting vast quantities of light, x-rays, and radio waves at the same time. next week, we'll see how 3c 273 was discovered. until then, this is tony flanders from "sky & telescope" magazine, wishing you clear skies and great views. >> brought to you by... manufacturers of telescopes and binoculars.
