Southern Skywatch August, 2014 edition is now out!
The August edition of Southern Skywatch is now up. This month features an occultation of Saturn and a "supermoon".
There's still a bit of planetary action this month with Venus, Jupiter and Mars meeting the Moon. Mars and Saturn are also close.
Jupiter reappears in the morning twilight and comes very close to Venus on the 18th.
Mars is obvious in the western evening sky. Mars is near Saturn on the 25th-27th.
Saturn is high in the north-western evening sky and is occulted by the Moon on the 4th.
Venus is close to the crescent Moon on the 24th, and close to Jupiter on the 18th.
Mercury enters the evening sky and is close to the Moon on the 27th.
