Recently I have noticed Arcturus peeping again over the roof of my neighbour's extension as dawn starts to break in the East (~5.30-6.00UT) . A sure sign of spring in the offing :mrgreen:

Ah yes, the peep of the Spring Triangle!

Well, it certainly feels like spring is on the way to me. I've just come back from two weeks in Norway, almost half of which was north of the Arctic Circle. Nice to now feel the warmth of the strong Scottish sun!

Saw some nice aurorae, though. :)

We have not reached the Winter Solstice. yet!
I guess that the description of the various seasonal constellations (in the Northern Hemisphere) as Winter (Orion etc), Spring (Leo etc), Summer (Cygnus etc) and Autumn (Pegasus etc) show just how much Skywatching /Observing is done after Sunset (in the evening) rather than before Sunrise (in the morning).
