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, 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.
Prepare your instrument for December night sky. Comet Wirtanen will be at its closest approach. And What makes a galaxy? more with @awesomeastropod at #365DaysOfAstro
December! the longest nights will give you plenty of time to observe geminid meteors, lunar close encounters, and conjunction. #365DaysOfAstro with @MrWebbPV
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.
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’s up with JWST? And it looks like Oumuamua is a comet…
