The asteroid 3 Juno is zipping pretty quickly through Aquarius right now. It is fairly faint, reflecting sunlight at just magnitude 9.5 or so.

Look for the faint glow of Juno zipping past Neptune for a few days this week - watch the animation below to see how quickly

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.
