Dan's Starry Skies
by Dan Caton

Latest Update: June 13, 2014


Saturn and its rings (NASA)
June places Mars and Saturn along the arc of the ecliptic during the early evening. Saturn is always a fine view in a small telescope and even the smallest will show some of the rings and perhaps a few of its moons. Saturn has more moons visible in a modest (4-8 inch diameter) telescope that Jupiter but they are fainter. Jupiter is lost in the west now until we catch it in the dawn sky in a few months.

Saturn and Mars, looking south about 11pm.
