Young Stars in Southern Utah’s Spring Sky

With Cedar Breaks National Monument newly minted International Dark Sky park status, residents of Southwestern Utah may want to check out what we can see in Southern Utah’s spring sky. Orion’s Nebula, the Pleiades, and the Beehive Cluster appear almost as smudges to the naked eye – but with a good pair of binoculars, or a small backyard telescope, they look amazing! If you have a pair of binoculars, check them out before they disappear and we get all those old timey globular clusters for summer.
