Thursday June 10 to Thursday June 17
The New Moon is Thursday, June 10.Evening sky on Saturday June 12 showing the eastern sky as seen from Adelaide at 23:59 pm ACST (just before midnight). Saturn and Jupiter form a line in the late evening sky.
Venus is becoming more visible low in the twilight. I have been able to see Venus from 15 minutes after sunset and it is easily seen 30 minutes after sunset. Venus is close to the crescent moon on the 12th and both will fit in a 10x50 binocular field.
Mars is readily visible in the evening sky above the north-western horizon in the early evening. Mars is in Gemini forming a line with the bright stars Pollux and Castor.On the 13th and 4th the thin crescent Moon brackets Mars.
Jupiter is high in the morning sky forming a line with Saturn above the north-western horizon. Jupiter is now above the eastern horizon before midnight.
