Say goodbye to winter as the night sky transitions to spring

We have reached that particular time of the year when the sky is in transition and we are about to turn the page, so to speak, from the glorious wintertime stars and constellations to the somewhat dimmer stars of spring. 

And the farewell to those bright winter luminaries will be quite rapid, in part due to the increasing length of daylight. Indeed, from early February through early May, the length of the daylight hours increases by an average of 2.7 minutes per day; nearly 20 minutes per week.
