Skywatching hints for this week from Steve Cariddi:
Quote
The Moon is a waning crescent this week, generally being visible in the predawn sky. Venus is bright and easily seen in the western sky at sunset. Jupiter is at opposition on Tuesday, when it will rise at sunset and be visible all night. It shines brightly among the faint stars of Libra and is highest in the south around 1am local time. Saturn rises around 1am local time; Mars rises about an hour later. Both are best seen in the predawn southern sky, among the stars of Sagittarius.

Here is Brian Ventrudo's guide to observing Jupiter. If you have access to a telescope, you'll be able to see a lot of interesting things, but decent binoculars will also be helpful.

The sky this week from Steve Cariddi:
Quote
The Moon is new on Tuesday, the start of a new lunar month. Look for our nearest celestial neighbor a few nights later, low in the west or southwest sky after sunset. Each night it will move farther east (left) and get a bit higher and fatter, but every night this week it will be a crescent (less than half illuminated). On Thursday night, look for the Moon a few degrees to the east (left) of Venus, which is very bright in the western sky after sunset. By the time night falls, you should be able to see Jupiter (in the constellation Libra) shining bright and low in the east. It is just past opposition, so it will be visible most of the night, being at its highest point around midnight. Saturn is also rising around midnight (in Sagittarius), followed by Mars (in Capricorn) about an hour later. The two planets will be at the highest in the south just before dawn.

Astronomy magazine gives some tips for observing the night sky from the 18th to the 25th of May. Some things you'll be able to see without optical aids. For others, even if you don't have a telescope, binoculars can be helpful.

Reminder from Bruce McClure of EarthSky:

Tonight – May 21, 2018 – the half-lit first quarter moon passes 1.5 degrees (3 moon-diameters) north of Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo the Lion. Nearly everyone worldwide can use the moon to find the star Regulus on this night.

Just look for the moon in the evening sky. The nearby bright star will be Regulus.

There’s little chance of mistaking another star for Regulus, because Regulus is the only bright object within a stone’s throw of the May 21 moon.
