Southern Skywatch August, 2013 edition is now out!
The August edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.
There's still some nice planetary action this month with Jupiter, Mars and Mercury meeting the Moon.
Mars climbs higher to the morning sky and is near the crescent Moon on the 4th. Jupiter climbs higher still and is also near the crescent Moon on the 4th.
Mercury leaves the morning sky after being not far from Mars and Jupiter in the first weeks of the Month. It is near the crescent Moon on the 5th.
Saturn was at opposition in April, but it is still big and bright this month. On March 13 the Moon is close to Saturn.
On the 10th the crescent Moon is close to Venus.
