Skywatching  Venus is now making her dramatic switch from Evening Star to Morning Star!  She’s in the underworld right now, and will reappear as the Morning Star just before sunrise around 12 June.

Jupiter, Saturn and Mars rise in the east around midnight, then can be seen higher in the sky as the night progresses.

Mercury will be at its most visible in the evening sky on Thurs 4 June, when it’s at its furthest distance from the Sun and its highest point above the horizon.  Look to the west just after sunset and you’ll see Mercury quite low in the sky.
