moon phases


Mercury : Very low down and not easy to see this month (evening sky)

Venus : Venus is currently appearing as the Morning Star. Also not very high and not rising much before the Sun.

Mars : Mars fading and shrinking now and sinking in the southwest as it gets dark, despite that more or less holding position relative to the Sun.

Jupiter : Visible before sunrise and heading from Cancer towards Leo.

Saturn : Saturn came to opposition on May 10th so its coming to end of its display for now, passing round the Sun and re-appearing in December

Uranus : Uranus rises just after 9pm and by midnight is at a decent altitude in Pisces.

Neptune : Neptune rises about an hour ahead of Uranus in Aquarius.

Meteors : No major showers due this month.
