June is a quiet month for stargazing as the nights are too bright for seeing celestial objects in all their glory. The good news is that there are still planets to be studied, an opportunity to spot Noctilucent clouds , see the Earth’s shadow cast into the sky and over the next couple of months, we will focus on double stars. Take the time to study the Moon this month if you have binoculars or a small telescope.
