In addition to not getting to see the fabulous Summer Moon Illusion tonight, we will also not be seeing this:
VENUS & SATURN: Saturn and Venus are converging in the sunset sky for a beautiful close encounter this weekend. At closest approach on Saturday, June 30th, the two planets will be a mere 2/3rds of a
degree apart. It’s a pretty sight for the unaided eye, and a great target for backyard telescopes. Even small ‘scopes will reveal the rings of Saturn and the crescent shape of Venus.
I know that everyone is afraid to complain about the rain because of the horrific drought we were having and it is nice to have cooler weather but, I’m going out on a limb here and being very daring: Enough rain already!
