Every month, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration releases Skywatching tips for that month. Here's what you'll find in the night sky for June 2019:

  • Jupiter is closest to Earth's orbit this month which can give an amazing view of the planet and even three of its moons if you use a decent telescope or even and good pair binoculars.
  • Mars and Mercury will appear very close together on June 17 and 18 just after sunset.
  • Find out how to tell our moon's orbit is tilted.
  • Speaking of the moon, it's full this month on the 17.
