These are some of the best events to photograph in May 2023: A penumbral lunar eclipse, the Full Moon, the Eta Aquariids meteor shower, 5 conjunctions of the Moon with Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Mars, the occultation of Jupiter behind the Moon, Mercury at its greatest western elongation, the Milky Way and the Galactic Center, sunrise and sunsets… and more!

Also, at the end of the video I’m sharing some of the best photos you’ve submitted to the PhotoPills awards and we’ve featured in April.
