What to look out, and up, for in July.
With no Jen this month (she’s off sciencing), it’s just Paul & Ralph’s highlights for this month’s skies; starting with the solar system objects on offer to observers and imagers:
- Mars at its most favourable opposition since 2003
- Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto
- A super-long lunar eclipse
Next up, we take a deep sky pick from our list of favourites for this time of year.
- Ralph – Messier 16, The Eagle Nebula
- Paul – NGC 6822, Barnard’s Irregular
And we finish this sky guide with July’s moon phases.
