Astronomy contributor Jean Creighton joined us to talk about what stars and constellations are visible to us in the night sky this month. 

"It’s going too fast and the isotope ratios are different; this one came from elsewhere," says Creighton. "That means that you can look up at a really bright star. Arcturus is really bright, and pretty, and you’re looking at a piece of another galaxy."
