Mercury is near the "twin" stars of Castor and Pollux of Gemini about an hour after sunset.  Visible for longer, but moving towards the west-northwest, is the Moon and Mars, with Regulus of Leo sitting between the duo and trio.  For more information, see the June 25 thru July 1 "Eyes on the Sky" video.

The Nightlight

This blog includes what to see in the night and daytime skies, thoughts on telescopes, binoculars, and other astronomy observing accessories and equipment, plus my own occasional notes on objects I've seen and observed. Oh, and the random theater or other "my take on life" post. In other words, there is always something interesting. Check it out.
