The Night Sky this July! 2 Jul 2024 What to look out for in the night sky from Eynsham.

This is not intended to be comprehensive - it is a quick guide to help you find a few things in the night sky without any equipment - just your eyes.

All of these are very bright and easy to find when walking around the village.

The short nights mean that you have to get up early or stay out late.

Look out for the Summer Triangle in constellation Cygnus.

Mercury is low down and hard to see. Jupiter and Mars can be seen before sunrise in te east. Saturn rises about 11:30pm.

The Moon is full on the 21st rising about 10pm in the SE. 

There are no bright International Space Station passes this month.

I have made or found the following charts to help you find: -

  • 19th Sagittarius and Moon
  • 23rd Saturn and Moon
  • 30th Jupiter, Mars and the Moon 
  • Moon Phases
  • Features on the Moon
  • Cygnus snd the Summer Triangle
