Sky Guide July: Don’t Miss These Eye-Catchers!
While Mars and Venus are slowly losing their appeal, Jupiter is emerging as the star of the morning sky. However, the ringed planet, Saturn, is also becoming increasingly visible from the Northern Hemisphere. Those looking for a particularly thrilling challenge can find out how to best observe Pluto. After all, it reaches its opposition on the 22nd of July, which is a great prerequisite for fascinating views of the well-known dwarf planet. With the Delta Aquariids and the beginning of the Perseid showers at the end of July, we can also look forward to some exciting observations in the meteor shower department. And the Deep Sky Delights take us to a very diverse celestial area this month: the constellations Sagittarius, Serpens, and Scutum.
