July is the month of Jupiter and Saturn this year, with both gracing the skies all night. Check it out at #365DaysOfAstro with @MrWebbPV
June will be warmer, with shorter nights, but still some good events. Watch for Mercury and Mars in a conjunction mid-month, Jupiter up all night long, and some good lunar close encounters.
May is looking to be a great month for catching up on constellations, enjoying the warm air, and checking out the Moon getting close to the planets.
April is fairly non-eventful, except for the annual Lyrid meteor shower and some good close encounters between the Moon and Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn, and at least one rocket launch.
A great morning lineup in the beginning of the month, all the naked-eye planets visible at some point in the month, and a great lineup ending the month is making March another great morning planetary astronomy month.
A great morning lineup in the beginning of the month, a conjunction mid-month, all the naked-eye planets visible at some point in the month, winter constellations, and a great lineup ending the month is making February look like a GREAT month for naked eye astronomy.
A lunar eclipse, a conjunction between Jupiter and Venus, and two good lineups of planets bookending the month make January a spectacular month to go out stargazing, if you don’t mind the cold.
