JUNE SKIES

As daylight gets longer and night light gets shorter, the summer skies are upon us.
Two bright planets shine bright in the late evening sky. Looking south east, you will see Saturn above the horizon with Jupiter and Pluto just above.
 
June 10th 11:30 pm.


June 5th - Full Strawberry Moon
This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Strawberry Moon because it signaled the time of year to gather ripening fruit. It also coincides with the peak of the strawberry harvesting season. This moon has also been known as the Full Rose Moon and the Full Honey Moon. Moonrise begins at 8:08 pm PDT.


June 20 - June Solstice First Day of Summer 
Summer Solstice is Saturday, June 20, at 2:44 P.M. PDT The North Pole of the earth will be tilted toward the Sun, which will have reached its northernmost position in the sky and will be directly over the Tropic of Cancer at 23.44 degrees north latitude. This is the first day of summer (summer solstice) in the Northern Hemisphere and the first day of winter (winter solstice) in the Southern Hemisphere. 
The solstice doesn't always occur on the same day and the timing of the June solstice is not based on a specific calendar date or time; it all depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator. Therefore, the solstice won’t always occur on the same day. Currently, it shifts between June 20, 21, and 22.


June 21st - New Moon
A perfect evening for star gazing to see the more faint galaxies and star clusters, as the night will be dark because the moon will not be visible in the night sky.

Another highlight of summer sky, is the Summer Triangle asterism rising in the east in June and July evenings. It’s a large star pattern made of 3 bright stars in 3 separate constellations, Cygnus (The Swan), Lyra (The Harp) and Aquila (The Eagle).
