The Night Sky for August 2018


Mid-month, the Perseid meteor shower—an always-anticipated feature of the August night sky—will peak. Backyard telescopes will also reveal sunlight reflecting off the clouds of Venus’s thick atmosphere and the Ring Nebula, an expanding shell of glowing gas in the constellation Lyra.

Find out more about what you can see from your backyard, front stoop, or local park by viewing this monthly program.
