    Default Best Night Sky Events of July 2017



    Sorry to be a little late with this one folks. Here is the latest list from Space.com. It provides information on several interesting observing opportunities throughout the month of July, with 21 pages of interesting pictures, maps, and information for this month. Find it here, at:
    https://www.space.com/33974-best-night-sky-events.html
    I hope this helps in your observing plans and that it is useful to you. Thanks for looking, and the best of wishes for many clear skies.

    I've got my fingers crossed on the weather also...have two outreach programs scheduled for this month: 7 July (for Childhelp kids) and 21 July (for Scouts working NOVA award)! This Virginia weather has really been crazy
