Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of Curiosity's landing on Mars. Perseids peak next week - try seeing some this weekend coming up even though the peak is next Monday evening Aug. 12th. Young moon won't interfere with late night observing. Friday evening 45 minutes after sunset, look in the west for that thin crescent moon below brilliant Venus. Over the next weeks watch as Saturn sinks down toward Venus. Deep into summer now, sunsets are coming earlier, sunrises are coming later providing more evening observing time with warm temps.
