The Sky Is Cheap Entertainment: A Starry Crown in the Northern Sky

Look for the beautiful 

Northern Crown

Tonight, look for a constellation that’s easy to see on the sky’s dome, if your sky is dark enough. Corona Borealis – aka the Northern Crown – is exciting to find. It’s an almost-perfect semicircle of stars. You’ll find this beautiful pattern in the evening sky from now until October.
The constellation Corona Borealis is located more or less along a line between two bright stars, Arcturus in the constellation Bo├Âtes the Herdsman and Vega in the constellation Lyra the Harp.
