Tour other seasonal constellation highlights and stars orbited by newly discovered extrasolar planets. And learn where and when to see what promises to be the most exciting sky event of 2014, an amazing display of shooting stars that could come early on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend (May 24) as Earth passes through trails of dust left behind by a tiny comet!
