As announced last week, we have published a diagram
(see design on “Educational Department” page) showing
the "Sky Love Sign” in this issue. If you will watch the
sky about 8 o’clock this evening, if it is clear, you can see
the figure in just about the position of the afternoon sun at
4 p.m. Near the figure and to the upper right, forming a
triangle with the nearest stars of the “Sky Love Sign”, you
can see another, the “Sentinel” star to the groupe of five
brilliant stars forming the “Sky Love Sign”.
