The next week is going to be overshadowed by the Moon a bit so it’s the perfect opportunity to do some Moon observing. There’s also a good chance to spot some interesting globular clusters.
Next week, Mars and Jupiter are better positioned in the early morning, before dawn, to get some good views and it might be the last chance to see Mercury for a while. With the moon taking a break the opportunity exists for some great views of some of the more fainter objects.
We’re doing a weekly update for the night sky, because there’s so many awesome things to look at and a monthly update just doesn’t do justice. This week the planets do a bit of a dance and we get to have a look at some deep sky objects that we haven’t seen for a while.
You don’t need expensive equipment to do astrophotography. A smartphone and a telescope is all you need to get some great shots that will impress your friends and family.
