Southern Skywatch July 2011 Edition Up

Evening sky on Sunday July 3 looking west as seen from Adelaide at 6:30 pm local time in South Australia showing Mercury and the crescent Moon together. Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time (click to embiggen).

The July edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.

Venus leaves the morning sky. Mars comes close to the Antares and the "horns" of Taurus the Bull. Jupiter is prominent, and is now a god telescopic object.

Mercury returns to the evening sky and comes close to Regulus. Vesta becomes visible to the unaided eye later in the month. Saturn is well past opposition, and is becoming a more difficult telescopic object in the evening. Good telescopic observation can be had from around 7:00 pm to 9 pm.
