Observing With Webb - July
Naked eye planets:
- Jupiter, already high in the sky as dusk turns to night off in the SE and will probably be the first point of light you can see. Throughout each night it’ll move toward the South, then set in the SW by 4am at the beginning of the month. Throughout the month it’ll start higher in the sky and set earlier, by 2am on the 31st.
- Saturn will trail behind Jupiter in the sky by about 30˚, rising just after sunset, and setting right around sunrise. Hence, this month it’s Saturn’s turn to reach opposition, giving us a lot of time to observe the planet and its rings.
