Light Show

More for Space Geeks

The brightest lights in the night sky are having a get-together. On July 16th and 17th, Jupiter and the nearly-full Moon will be side-by-side in the constellation Sagittarius.

The pair rise in the southeast just after nightfall and remain visible all night long.

There is also a bonus for those of us in Europe and North America. The International Space Station is making a series of evening passes over Europe and North America and it will join Jupiter and the Moon over many towns and cities.

You can find out the times the ISS will brighten your sky by checking the Simple Satellite Tracker to find out when to look:
