Astro Word of the Day

Friday July 22, 2016 -

Welcome to Leo

The Sun is just entering the sign of Leo now. We can all pretend to be a Leo for the next few weeks. Be bold. Try something new. Take charge of a project. Dress in bright colors. Have a party!

The Evening Sky 

The Moon is gone from the evening sky now and can be more easily seen in the predawn sky. But we have a dazzling lineup of planets in the evening sky for a while. You can find Venus and Mercury low in the western sky just after sunset. Also find brilliant Jupiter, Mars and Saturn along the Ecliptic. In the image of the day, the dotted black line is the Ecliptic, of the Great Highway in the Sky for the planets!
