Plenty of things to view in the August night sky

We have a lot to talk about for the month of August when it comes to viewing the night sky. From stars, to planets, meteor showers, the moon, and even rocket launches, we have you covered!

We have multiple passes of the International Space Station. That being with a pass on Monday night right around 9:07 PM. With clear conditions, expected things are looking pretty good for this pass. 

We will also be seeing the space station Tuesday at 9:55 PM and then another great pass on Wednesday at 9:07 PM (I'd catch this one if you had to choose)

As we look towards the middle of the month, the Moon will be reaching full phase on the 11th of August, known as "The Sturgeon Moon".

The Perseid Meteor Shower which falls on the 11th through the 13th. This showers is typically one of the best of the year but will see reduced rates thanks to the light pollution from the full moon.

We will have a few good viewing opportunities along with the Moon. On August 15th, Jupiter and the Moon will be in the late night and morning skies.

On the 19th, the Moon, Mars, and the Pleiades will be visible mainly in the early morning.
