Description: What to look out, and up, for in July.

With no Jen this month (she’s off sciencing), it’s just Paul & Ralph’s highlights for this month’s skies; starting with the solar system objects on offer to observers and imagers:

  • Mars at its most favourable opposition since 2003
  • Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto
  • A super-long lunar Eclipse

Next up, we take a deep sky pick from our list of favourites for this time of year.

  • Ralph – Messier 16, The Eagle Nebula
  • Paul –  NGC 6822, Barnard’s Irregular

And we finish this sky guide with July’s moon phases.
