Astronomy round up news & sky guide for June with @AwesomeAstroPod at #365DaysOfAstro
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.
What’s so bad about Venus, besides everything? How did it get so bad? How about Earth? @PaulMattSutter will answer the questions at #365DaysOfAstro
It turns out that the universe is kind of big. If the universe is important are we immortal? Did life happen on Venus and Mars?
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.
