Best Stargazing April 2021
Best Stargazing April 2021

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.

Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.

In the summer, the dipper is at ‘9-o’clock’ and hangs dipper down.
In the autumn, the dipper is at ‘6-o’clock’ with the dipper facing up/handle to the left.
In the winter, the dipper is at ‘3-o’clock’ with the handle hanging down.
In the spring, the dipper is at ’12-o’clock’ with the dipper facing down/handle to the right.

Ice Out on Inland Lakes
Ice Out on Inland Lakes

Ice out -when lake ice disintegrates enough for most of the lake to be ice-free – is late up north. Lake edges give way first with a few inches, then a foot of open water. The ice goes soft and gets granular. Right before it breaks up it can get very dark. We all keep our fingers crossed the lakes will be open for walleye Fishing Opener.
