What’s that in the sky?

– For all you night owls

You will see the giant Scorpion move from high in the heavens and sink towards the West. His stinger is in the Milky Way. You can also see magnificent Jupiter coming from the East and rises higher and higher in the heavens. If you would like to see the sky as the indigenous people did, then look at the dark spot near the Southern Cross. Imagine it’s the head of an upside down Emu who’s neck and body is the elongated dark area extending through the Milky Way.


 –For all you early birds

Lucky you – as you will see the two brightest planets in the morning skies. First if you look west you will see Jupiter falling down to the horizon. But I bet your gaze will be pulled to the east as you see Venus rise higher and higher before the Sun. Have some fun and see if you can see Mars. He will be higher and about a hand span from Venus. As August progresses you will see Mars move between the stars at the tips of the horns of Taurus the Bull. Slightly to the north you will see the Pleiades, also known as the 7 sisters, reputed in ancient literature as causing blindness – but that’s maybe because they tried to count them!


Do you remember the things you were worrying about a year ago? How did they work out? Didn’t you waste a lot of fruitless energy on account of most of them? Didn’t most of them turn out all right after all? – Dale Carnegie
