The Summer Night Sky

At this time of year nights are short but it is possible to get very clear , very still evenings which  can afford amazing view of the Moon, for example.

August kicks off the major meteor shower year with the Perseids, which this year are blighted by a near full Moon, making observing them difficult.

Planets are also challenging to locate.
