Southern Skywatch June, 2013 edition is now out!

Western horizon at 6:00 pm local time on June 10.

The June edition of Southern Skywatch is now up.

There is a "blue" Last Quarter Moon on the 30th.

Mars returns to the morning sky and is near the crescent Moon on the 7th..

There's still some nice planetary action this month with Venus and Mercury meeting, there is also an occultation.

Saturn was at opposition in April, but it is still big and bright this month.  On March 19 the Moon  is close to Saturn.

Jupiter disappears from view this month.

On the 10th the crescent Moon  is close to Venus and Mercury . Venus and Mercury are close again on the 20th-23rd.

The star alpha Librae2 is occulted on the 20th, seen from eastern Australia and South Australia. Everywhere else sees alpha Librae2 very close to the Moon.
