    For those with time on their hands

    Couple excellent things to see the next few days. If you are up early enough, the 5 brightest planets will all be visible for the next several weeks: Venus, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will all be out. And Comet Catalina can be seen with binocs or a small scope in Ursa Major before it disappears forever. Comet PanSTARR is now visible with binocs or small scope but may turn to a naked eye visible object later this year.

    Catalina is currently in the Big Dipper part of Ursa Major. Simply look for the handle and it should appear slightly to the left.
    PanSTARR is to the west in Pegasus. Find the four stars that make a square and it will be located to the southeast of the square.

        It would. Saturn will be the latest to pop up, around 3 or so local time. It'll move fairly fast due to its location.

          They can't officially. But they did piece some parts of multiple other constellations together to create a sort of lightning bolt.

              I guess they call those an asterism.
