July Sky Stargazing Guide

Which planets are visible in the Northern skies this month? Saturn is still watching over us and is making some interesting aspects with various stars this month. Venus, the summer star is the brightest in the sky and can be viewed throughout the summer nights. Pluto is with us, although we are not able to view it with the naked eye, with a little skill and a good sky map we should be able to find it with a medium telescope. Jupiter is now only visible during the very early hours, as is Mercury but the Moon, as always dances her merry dance throughout the skies at various stages throughout July. Read more about the planets on view this month and check out the diagrams to help you find them in the nightsky in this informative article by EarthSky.
