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:

  • Jupiter
  • Mars
  • Saturn

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:

  • Arietids
  • 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.
