Looking for Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, or Mars? This is your last good month to see all of them at the same time. Also, get ready for some longer nights, a shallow dive into Sagittarius, the Summer Triangle, and Cassiopeia.
Discussion with Cassini mission scientist Dr. Michele Dougherty whose team made a number of discoveries about the Saturn system including the presence of a subsurface ocean on Enceladus.
August, even with very short nights, will be a great month for watching the four brightest naked-eye planets at sunset, the usual close encounters, and the annual Perseid Meteor Shower.
What to look out, and up, for in June.
May will be a month for 4 out of the 5 naked eye planets, with Venus and Jupiter visible early each night and Mars and Saturn visible in the mornings, along with close encounters between each of these and the Moon.
April brings us plenty of Jupiter time, a close encounter between Mars and Saturn, and a potentially decent Lyrid meteor shower. And MAYBE some better weather.
What to look out, and up, for in April.
