Tour July's Sky by Eye and Ear
Jupiter, king of the planets, is opposite the Sun in the sky on July 9th, and in the weeks thereafter it rises sooner, dominating the eastern sky with its dazzling luster.
July is also the month when Earth is its farthest from the Sun. And early this month a new Moon helps to push our planet outward even farther.
To get a personally guided tour of these sights and others, hosted by S&T's Kelly Beatty, download this month's audio sky tour to your iPod or other handheld device or just use your computer to play it.
