Stellar incubator is home to thousands of stars

Saturn and Venus have been fixtures of the early evening sky, and come Friday, the two are within half a dozen degrees of one another. By Tuesday they are barely three degrees apart low in the west-southwest immediately after sunset. Venus is so bright you may spot her while the sky is still lit. Saturn pops into view to the upper left of Venus. Both planets sink beneath the horizon within an hour of the sun, but over the coming weeks, Venus holds steady, while Saturn disappears from view.

In the age of dynasties, Kung Fu was as regional as dialects. Masters from the north battled masters from the south, all seeking to perfect techniques and create new and deadlier arts.     Among the Southern Masters, a rising star, Ip Man (Tony Leung Chiu Wai: The Silent War), is chosen to take on the Northern Grandmaster. A rich man with time to practice his craft, Ip Man is the embodiment of Kung Fu: he is confident and kind with a good sense of humor.
