Sky at the glance

When you head outdoors tonight, take Sky & Telescope's podcast with you for a guided tour to the night sky. Learn what constellations are visible, find out where and when you'll see the planets, and catch each month's celestial highlights, from meteor showers to eclipses.
  1. Jupiter is that white point glaring in the south during and after dusk. Orange Antares, fainter, twinkles to its lower right.

  2. Jupiter shines bright in the southeast after dark. Saturn is up late. The Big Dipper, high in the northwest, is starting to turn around to "scoop up water."

  5. The evening gibbous Moon forms a triangle with Jupiter to its lower right and Antares to its lower left, as shown here. Think photo opportunity.
