The Moon will be big and bright Sunday night! Perigee (Close) sends the large super moon to brighten our night sky! Take a look, if the clouds stay away. And use a moon filter! By the end of this week we should have darker skies to view the stars without the moon. There is an interesting binocular field around Antares. Find the dim glow of the globular cluster M4. Also Rho Ophiuchi, the fine binocular triple star in the same field! It's the top star of a loop of five including Antares. The forecast calls for Clear skies Thursday? Lets hope we can put the scope on the keystone and M13 again. After that, go to the double star Albireo in the swan and then perhaps M5, floating nearby. Scan the Tea pot for lots more clusters and nebula! Saturn is still hovering near Virgo as it moves towards the west.
