August Highlights

This month, we will continue to have a dazzling array of planets! Venus will be the brightest in the west, and is in phase, easily visible in a telescope. Jupiter will continue to be well-positioned with its four visible moons, and Saturn will be stellar with its gorgeous rings. Mars is the closest it has been to earth since 2003, and is very red and bright. The moon will be at First Quarter, perfect for viewing craters and mountains along the terminator - the line between day and night.
