Moon Meets Mars—June 3

The Mars will be seen coming very near to the moon in this day. The coming together of these two entities will be observed by the morning people in the southeast direction. Mars will become excessively shinier through the month of June.

Venus and Gemini—June 10

Venus will appear to be an extension of the paired stars in the constellation Gemini on this day. During the sunset, gaze towards the Western direction and observe the Venus shine as brightly as a star. June of 6th will be the date when Venus reaches the top most position. Just like Mars, Venus will also brighten up throughout the month. It will get easier to observe the planet through the device day by day.

Beehive Sandwich—June 16

You can reach the Beehive cluster in the sky by taking the reference of the positions of Venus and Moon. If you want to look at the Beehive cluster, it will be in the center of these two entities. The cluster is as far as 570 light years from the earth containing around 200 stars within the span of 25 light years. Right after mid-June, both the celestial bodies will rest 8 degrees from each other and the cluster would exactly be in the middle of both. A binocular should be helpful in catching the view.

Moon and Lion’s Heart—June 17

Almost as bright as the Dog Star; Regulus heads the Leo constellation. It was last seen about 10 months ago from now by a few. It pairs with the moon around 17th of June. Regulus is at a distance of less than 80 light years and it was found that is has been rotating at over eight hundred thousand miles per hour.

Naked-Eye Vesta—June 19

Vesta will be the largest and brightest of all sitting opposite to the Sun. It is about 320 miles away from the earth but is expected to come as close as one third of this distance. We can find it a few degrees below Saturn. Through the month, it will be travelling from behind of the stars of Sagittarius constellation.

Summer (or Winter) Solstice—June 21

In the Northern part of the Earth, summers will commence on this day around 6 am. The cause of all the seasons is the slight tilt in the axis of Earth. When a new season starts, for a few days Sun seems to be rising from the same point of horizon till the date of Solstice. After that the length of the days starts reducing gradually. This happens in the Northern hemisphere while the opposite in Southern.

Moon Joins Jupiter—June 23

Jupiter will be visible during the nights and gibbous moon will be approaching it during this day. Jupiter’s size will appear to be diminishing day by day during this month.

Saturn at Its Best—June 27

Very close to the horizon will be Saturn on this day. The planet will be as big and bright as it gets during this month for the year. Its rings will easily be observable through any telescope. The dark gaps and some other spectacular features will be exciting to see.
