We’ve got to hand it to June for it’s giving us some of the most beautiful nights in the sky.
Not one but five astronomical events make a spectacular view for this month. On June 9, there’s a rare and beautiful alignment of planets and a conjunction of crescents that awaits us sky watchers.
Rare alignment of planets
Seen on the east late evening on June 8-9 is a line-up of celestial wonder like no other with the planets Jupiter, Saturn and the waning moon.
“This is an excellent opportunity to see them close together,”– Ian Musgrave, Amateur Astronomer

And if you’re lucky, you can spot the Milky Way directly overhead past 11:00PM. This only happens once every 20 years, so better not miss it.
