Southern Skywatch June, 2014 edition is now out!

Morning sky on  June 25 looking east as seen from Adelaide at 6:00 am ACST.   Similar views will be seen throughout Australia at equivalent local times. (click to embiggen).

The June edition of Southern Skywatch is now up. This month is a bit more sedate than previous months, but there is still some nice sky watching to be done.

There's a bit of planetary action this month with Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars meeting the Moon.

Jupiter sinks towards the north-western horizon in the early evening. Jupiter is also near the Moon on the 1st and 29th.

Mars is obvious in the eastern evening sky.  Mars is near the Moon on the 7th and 8th.

Saturn climbs higher in the evening sky and is close to the Moon on the 10th.

Venus is close to the crescent Moon on the 25th.

Mercury returns to the morning sky late in the month.
