The Sky Tonight for the week Beginning July 25th (Podcast)

Listen to this article

Today we look at the sky for the week beginning Sunday, July 25th. With this edition of the sky tonight, the sky has changed somewhat since last week. In the morning, Mercury is in Cancer with the sun and lost in the solar glare before sunrise. The evening sky sees Venus remaining prominently placed with Mars setting earlier than last week.

Scorpio with red supergiant Antares, the heart of the Scorpion, is on the meridian at 9:20 PM, EDT with Sagittarius due east and prominently placed by midnight. As they have been for the previous 3 weeks, Jupiter and Saturn are both well placed by 10:30 PM EDT with the waning gibbous moon in Pisces and rising at 11:00 PM on the evening of July 27th. The ethereal majesty of the summer milky way and galactic center, 25,000 light years distant, join Sagittarius on the meridian.
