Celestial Seasonings – June 2022

By Heather Durham | May 31, 2022

Good day, everyone! Welcome to the month containing our summer solstice. There will be two meteor showers along with a rare arrangement of five planets possibly visible with the naked eye, but even more spectacular with binoculars or access to a larger telescope.

Between the 18th to the 27th or the last two weeks of June, early risers will be able to view a five-planet line passing by a sliver of the final phase of our Strawberry Super-moon. This planet line will consist of Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury.

Another more frequent occurrence happens when planets appear to reverse their orbits. They normally appear to head east, but due to the rotation of the earth around our Sun, it only appears as though a given planet may look as though it’s headed west as seen in the diagram below.

Let’s delve in for a deeper look …

Prograde MotionJune 4. Saturn appears as though it’s going backwards because of the rotation of the Earth around the Sun.

June 7. The Strawberry Moon will be at first quarter.

June 10. The Daytime Arietid Meteor Shower will put on a display today. Coming from the Constellation Aries, the best viewing will be just before dawn.

June 14. The Strawberry Super Moon will be full today. A super moon occurs when the Moon passes closer to the Earth.

June 16. Mercury will be as far away from the Sun as it ever orbits.

June 18. The Moon and Saturn will rise and closely approach one another.

June 20. The Moon will be in its final quarter.

June 21. The first day of summer-midsummer will be today in the Northern Hemisphere. The Moon and Jupiter will rise to the right and closely approach one another.

June 22. Mercury will be at its highest point in the sky. Our Moon and Mars will rise and travel close to each other.

June 23. Mercury will be at its highest place in the sky.

June 26. The Moon and Venus will rise and closely approach one another.

June 27. Today is the day of the June Bootid Meteor Shower. Best viewing times will be just before dawn and dusk. This shower is known as being slow and unpredictable.

Celestial Seasonings – March 2022

By Heather Durham | February 28, 2022

Hi there one and all! The month of March has much to offer skywatchers. We have the first day of spring occurring on the 20th. Meteorologists declare March 1st to be the first day of spring, but the day of the equinox brings approximately 12 hours of daylight and nighttime.

The 28th will have the most activity with three planets in view and moving around until they form somewhat of a linear line in the night sky.

Last month, I wrote about Artemis One which had to be postponed and rescheduled for the 20th of this month. Let’s hope this time it will be successful.

The YouTube videos speak of additional activity sometimes referring to astrophotography. There are astronomical phenomena, referred to in the videos that cannot be seen with the naked eye, but that are depicted visually therein.

Let’s now delve into the month ahead.


March 10. Our Moon will be at first quarter.

March 12. Venus and Mars will rise to the right during which time Venus will be passing Mars.

March 15. Venus and Mars will be close to one another and pass each other as well.

March 18. The Worm Moon will be full. It is named as the earth worms begin their activity.

March 20. This is the first day of spring also known as the March equinox. Venus will travel to its farthest distance from our Sun.

March 21. Venus may be seen at its half phase.

March 25. Our Moon will reach its final quarter.

March 27. The Moon and Mars will rise right and travel as close as they ever get.

March 28. The Moon and Mars will travel close to one another again. The Moon and Venus will rise and closely approach one another. The Moon and Saturn will do the same. Our Moon with Venus and Saturn will travel together and pass one another. Our Moon and Saturn will closely approach one another too as well as Venus and Saturn.

March 29. Venus and Saturn will rise and travel closely to each other.

Celestial Seasonings – February 2022

By Heather Durham | January 31, 2022.

Greetings fellow skywatchers! Welcome to this month’s edition of Celestial Seasonings including two important and fascinating manifestations of manmade industriousness.

In the interest of clarity, I have included two quotes. The first one on Artemis comes from Wikipedia.

The Artemis program is a United States-led international human spaceflight program. Its primary goal is to return humans to the Moon, specifically the lunar south pole, by 2025. If successful, it will include the first crewed lunar landing mission since Apollo 17 in 1972, the last lunar flight of the Apollo program.
The Artemis program began in December 2017 as the reorganization and continuation of successive efforts to revitalize the U.S. space program since 2009. Its stated short-term goal is landing the first woman on the Moon; mid-term objectives include establishing an international expedition team and a sustainable human presence on the Moon. Long-term objectives are laying the foundations for the extraction of lunar resources, and eventually, make crewed missions to Mars and beyond feasible (Wikipedia, 2021).

And the other on Axiom from a website called Inverse.com. I have also included a YouTube video for your viewing pleasure that will provide you with visual depictions of February 2022 celestial events.

AXIOM SPACE COULD create the successor to humanity’s most iconic space station. The Houston-based firm plans to fly civilians on a series of private missions to the International Space Station. These missions would act as a steppingstone to a fully-fledged, private, independent space station.
It’s a fascinating twist in the new space race, which includes private companies alongside national agencies. While most attention has gone to rocket launch companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin, Axiom Space is an example of a company in another area that’s also crafting an exciting vision of humanity’s future in space.
Comments from Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos in May 2019 demonstrate why this is valuable. He explained that a company like Amazon could only emerge after the previous infrastructure was established, like the postal service and credit cards. Blue Origin, he said, would help develop the infrastructure to reach space so an imaginative entrepreneur could venture further in the future.
With Axiom Space, which depends on rocket launch companies to power its space station, that vision could take a big step forward.
The end goal is to use the private space station for commercial purposes. It could offer such amenities as a luxury hotel, a factory floor, or even a media production facility. The company’s website argues that “microgravity is the most promising environment for innovation and problem-solving since the Internet.
As NASA has only cleared the ISS for operations until 2030, it might even be a successor (Brown, 2022).

So, let’s now delve into the evening skies of February- the month of the full Snow Moon.

February 8. Today is the first quarter of the Moon.

February 9. Venus will reach its brightest as the morning or evening star. At times such as this, Venus can stand out so brightly that it may appear to shine along with our Sun and Moon. Mercury will locate to its highest point in the sky making it much more visible than it is normally.

February 11. Mercury will be at half phase. It only is visible in twilight so it might be difficult to view without equipment.

February 12. Venus reaches its highest point in the evening sky. Venus and Mars will rise to the right. This date will bring Artemis One, the first of three space flights planned for this program.

February 16. February is supposed to be the snowiest month, thus the name Snow Moon which will be full today. Mercury will be at its furthest distance from our Sun.

February 23. Today brings the last quarter of the Moon.

February 27. Today brings the right ascension of the Moon and Mars as well as the Moon and Venus. The Moon and Mars will closely approach one another.

February 28. Axiom in conjunction with Spacex will send people to space after they have completed ten days of training and paid fifty-five million dollars.

Celestial Seasonings – November 2021

By Heather Durham | October 31, 2021

Welcome to November’s edition!  This should be an exciting month for sky watchers!  Again this month, we have Halloween Fireballs, two splendid meteor showers and a partial lunar eclipse-the final one for this calendar year, that will also produce a blood moon. 

Once again, I have added videos.  The video contents contain more information than I have written about.  I left them out because either they are not visible to the naked eye or they present themselves for viewing from other parts of the world. There is one for the lunar eclipse by itself. 

View what and as you prefer.  I’m open to any suggestions you may have. Most importantly, however, enjoy the evening skies in the month ahead!


November 8. The Moon and Venus will orbit close to one another and rise to the right.

November 10. The Moon and Saturn will rise to the right in close proximity to one another.

November 11. The Moon will reach first quarter. The Moon and Jupiter will pass by close to each other and orbit towards the right.

November 12. The Northern Taurid meteor shower from Taurus will put on a display this evening. This display is also known as Halloween Fireballs. According to Wikipedia, “Since the meteor stream is rather spread out in space, Earth takes several weeks to pass through it, compared with the much smaller periods of activity in other showers.”

November 17. The Leonid meteor shower from Leo should be prolific this evening. At its prime, it could produce nearly 13 streaks per hour.

Beaver Moon - 1November 19. The Beaver Moon will be full today. There will also be a partial lunar eclipse. The terms penumbra and umbra refer to distinct shadow parts generated by light reflecting on an opaque object. According to In-the-sky.org, viewing time is as follows:

Local Time UTC
01:03 06:03 Moon begins to enter the Earth’s penumbra
02:20 07:20 Moon begins to enters the Earth’s umbra. Partial eclipse begins.
04:04 09:04 Greatest eclipse
05:48 10:48 Moon fully outside the Earth’s umbra. Partial eclipse ends.
07:04 12:04 Moon leaves the Earth’s penumbra

November 21. Tonight, the a-monocerotid meteor shower will put on a display. This is from the Constellation Canis Minor. The speed of this shower is almost as fast as the maximum meteor shower speed.

November 27. The Moon will be in its final quarter.

November 28. The November Orionid meteor shower for this month will be active this evening from the Constellation Orion. As long as the weather is good, there should be minimal interference from the upcoming new moon.

Celestial Seasonings – October 2021

By Heather Durham | September 30, 2021

Greetings everyone and welcome to the latest edition of Celestial Seasonings! This month, we have a plethora of meteor showers along with a new YouTube video for this month that I highly recommend you start with before planning your sky watching shows. Included as well, is a link to meteor showers created and maintained by NASA. You can put a meteor shower date on this NASA page and view prior showers. 

Our autumn equinox began in the afternoon of September 22. It’s pumpkin spice and apple picking season. Warm days and cool nights produce the changing color of the leaves on our trees. Then we are able to feast our senses on all that nature has to offer this time of year along with our journeys into the night skies. 

Have a pleasant month, enjoy yourselves and look forward to your astronomical offerings.


October 5. The Camelopardalis meteor shower will put on a fine display this evening. This comes from the Constellation Draco and should produce overnight with its finest show just before dawn. According to Wikipedia, this “is a large but faint Constellation in the northern sky representing a giraffe.”

October 8. On this date, we will enjoy another meteor shower from the Constellation Draco – the Draconids. Dusk will be ideal time for viewing. In 1933 and 1946, the Draconids were “among the most impressive meteor storms of the 21st century.”

October 9. The Moon and Venus will rise closely to one another while rising to the right.

October 10. The Southern Taurid meteor shower in the Constellation Cetus will display for approximately 12 hours from 7 pm until 7 am the next morning. Because of their occurrence in late October and early November, they are also called Halloween Fireballs.” Saturn will begin moving towards the east again.

October 11. The δ-Auridid [Delta-Auridid] meteor shower in the Constellation Auriga will bring a display tonight. The comet Kiess (C/1911_N1) is the source of this shower.

October 12. Tonight, our Moon will be at first quarter.

October 14. The Moon and Saturn will come close to each other and ascend right.

October 15. The Moon and Jupiter will come close to one another and rise to the right.
