August  : August kicks off with the full Moon on the 4th and by the 9th will have a close encounter with Mars which is still getting bigger, but still half as large as it will appear in October. Venus will also cuddle up to the Moon on the 16th and not to be outdone, heavy hitters Jupiter & Saturn will look especially cool next to the Moon on the 2nd and the 29th. Jupiter & Saturn are great visual and photographic targets this month.

Around midnight, all the bright nebulae and clusters around the Milky Way core are all fairly high, M8 Lagoon, M20 Triffid, Omega Nebula, M16 Eagle, War & Peace, The Cat’s Paw, Prawn and others. Away from the gregarious core however, the spectacular Helix Nebula NGC 7293 is in prime position for imaging. The for galaxy gang, Caldwell 77 the Whale Galaxy is also quite high as is Caldwell 70 a beautiful spiral galaxy in sculptor.
