Deane Morrison is a science writer at the University of Minnesota, where she authors the Minnesota Starwatch column. In this edition of Northern Sky, there's a lot going on in the month of May. Deane gives us the details on the full "supermoon" on the fifth, an update on Saturn and Mars, and explains the transit of Venus, which will be taking place soon.
