Southern Skywatch August, 2013 edition is now out!

Morning sky on Sunday August 4 looking north-east as seen from Adelaide at 6:30 am local time in South Australia. Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury form a line in the morning sky, with the crescent Moon above Jupiter. Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time (click to embiggen).
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.
