What’s Up in the July 2010 Our Night Sky

The “big” event of the month of July 2010 is actually a daytime event, namely a total solar eclipse. Unfortunately, the path of totality of this total solar eclipse is over the south Pacific Ocean. One island in the path of totality is Easter Island. This is the island most well known for its unique statues. No one really knows how and why these stone monuments were built. If you have clear skies and are able to stay up all night, you should be able to catch all 5 of the naked eye planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn). Learn more about what is up in the sky in the evening this month of July online now in the latest “Our Night Sky” segment of Astrocast.TV.
