What to look out, and up, for in June.
Our tour of the highlights of this month’s skies begins with the planets on offer to observers and imagers:
Next up is the meteor showers and we have quite a few daytime showers that can be spotted in the pre-dawn sky as well as some more usual showers in June:
- Zeta Perseids
- June Lyrids
- June Bootids
Then we each take a deep sky pick from our list of favourites for this time of year:
- Ralph – M13 The Great Globular Cluster in Hercules
- Paul – M8 The Lagoon Nebula
- Jeni – M57 The Ring Nebula
And we finish this sky guide with June’s moon phases and planetary conjunctions.
