2017, July: Saturn


Saturn, the Ringed Wonder, is low in the southeastern sky after sunset.  While not a spectacularly bright planet, it is a spectacle through a telescope.

The nearly full moon passes 2.5 degrees above Saturn on July 6.  The reddish star Antares is 14 degrees to the right of Saturn.
