The next few weeks will be your last chance of the year to see the constellation Leo in the evening skies.
The bright star at the tail end of Leo is named Denebola, which means "tail of the lion." While this star appears fainter than brilliant Regulus the star at the "heart" of Leoit is actually larger and brighter! It appears fainter because it is twice as far from us as is Regulus.
