The Sky Tonight for the week beginning July 14, 2019. We look at the phase of the moon, some of the prominent summer constellations and planets as well as discuss some interesting aspects of two of the season’s prominent stars.
During the video we discuss the star Antares and that it is a highly evolved red supergiant. It should be pointed out that Antares is high mass star that is quickly approaching its demise as a Type II supernova, a topic we’ll be discussing in a future video.
