About a half hour after local sunset, look very low in the southwest sky for brilliant Venus. On this night, the bright star Regulus, in the constellation Leo, should be perched right next to the planet, creating a stunning conjunction. The cosmic pair will be only one degree apart, or separated by about the width of two full moons.

Pluto at Opposition—July 12

Pluto will put on its best show in Earth’s skies for 2018 on this night. This is when the super-faint world reaches opposition, meaning it will lie opposite to the sun in our sky. It will rise in the east at sunset and set in the west at sunrise, allowing Pluto to be visible all night long. The small world is currently nestled within the southern constellation Sagittarius, which will appear late at night along the southern horizon for those in mid-northern latitudes.

Glimpsing Pluto is among the toughest observing challenges: It sits more than 4.6 billion miles away, and even at opposition it shines at a meager 14.1 magnitude—far fainter than what humans can see with the naked eye. Backyard sky-watchers will need a telescope with at least an eight-inch diameter mirror to glimpse this tiny world at the fringes of the solar system.

Moon Joins Jupiter—July 20

In a fitting tribute to the Apollo 11 moon landing, which happened 49 years ago on this day, look halfway up the southwestern sky about an hour after local sunset to watch the moon glide past Jupiter in the constellation Libra, the balance.

A few nights later, Saturn will get its turn for a close encounter with the moon. The pairing will make a great photo opportunity as the two worlds hang together low in the southeast within Sagittarius, right above the "teapot" pattern of stars that's part of the constellation. Saturn was at opposition only a few weeks ago, so the ringed planet and its larger moons will still make great targets for sky-watchers with backyard telescopes.

Mars at Its Best—July 27

The red planet will be at opposition and will make an exceptionally close pass by Earth on this night, coming within 35.8 million miles of our planet. That means Mars will appear at its biggest and brightest since 2003—even outshining Jupiter in the night sky for a few weeks.
