JULY SKY EVENTS

The Moon performs several beautiful close conjunctions this month during the short hours of night. It passes just below Mars on the 7th. Although the Red Planet now fades to magnitude –0.3, it still outshines spring’s brightest star, Arcturus, which has the same color, albeit a paler version.On the 10th, the Moon passes closely to the left of Saturn, whose magnitude of 0.2 is just half the brightness of Mars. The Moon is at its fullest on June 13. On the 14th, the Moon stands to the right of fading Venus, low in dawn’s brightening twilight.
