Kiss the Sky Tonight -- Month of August 2020

Posted by Guy Pirro 07/28/2020 02:04PM

Kiss the Sky Tonight -- Month of August 2020

Welcome to the night sky report for August 2020 -- Your guide to the constellations, deep sky objects, planets, and celestial events that are observable during the month. In August, a flock of star-studded figures soars overhead. Look for the constellation Lyra, shaped as a small parallelogram, which points to Epsilon Lyrae and the Ring Nebula. You can also spot three bright summer stars: Vega, Deneb, and Altair, which form the Summer Triangle. The night sky is truly a celestial showcase. Get outside and explore its wonders from your own backyard.

Guru:

Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad you find these postings useful.

Be on the lookout in the coming weeks, for I will be posting my complete personal viewing list: "The Guy Pirro 777 Best and Brightest Deep Sky Objects" in one place for handy reference. This list compiles my favorite 777 Deep Sky Objects as found in each of the constellations (as viewed from the northern hemisphere).

I hope everyone finds this upcoming posting useful.

Thanks,

Guy Pirro
