    Default Best Night Sky Events of June 2018



    Here is the latest report from Chris Vaughan of SkySafari Software, at Space.com. It provides information on several interesting observing opportunities throughout the month of June, with 27 pages of interesting pictures, maps, and information for this month. And on Sunday, June 3, the waning gibbous moon will sit 2.5 degrees above bright reddish Mars.

    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 night skies.

    Thanks, Marshall! Hopefully the sky will play nice for these and the Year of Astronomical Misery will take a turn for the better.

    Thanks for the link Marshall.

    The moon was mentioned way too much though!
    On the night Saturn will be at it's best the moon will be only a degree away.

    Don't forget Vesta on June 19th! Doing some plotting but looks like it will be cruising by M23 about that time.
