Astronomical phenomena July 2013

As an important event in this period, Mercury will be at greatest elongation to the delight of amateur astronomers who can photograph the planet easier on July 30, but also the Mars Jupiter conjunction on July 22.
This calendar will be modified with events which will appear in time, such as evolving asteroids or other objects in the sky.
Here's how it looks:

03 july 2013 Venus-Star cluster Beehive:  0.1°N at  17:26.

05 july 2013- Earth at Aphelion  . Earth reaches the furthest point to the Sun at 20:59.

07 july 2013 - Moon at the Apogee.  at 2:36 Moon reaches apogee, the farthest point from Earth: 406,493 km from Earth.

08 july 2013 - New Moon. Moon will be between the Earth and the Sun and will not be visible from Earth. This phase takes place at 07:14.

21 july 2013 - Moon at the Perigee  at 10:27 p.m. Moon reaches perigee, the closest point to Earth: 358,402 km from Earth.

22 july 2013 - Venus-Regulus: 1.0°N.

22 july 2013 - Jupiter 0.7° south of Mars - conjunction.

22 july 2013 - Full Moon. Earth is between the Sun and the Moon and so the Moon will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 18:15.

28, 29 july 2013 - South Delta Aquarids  can produce about 20 meteors per hour. Radiant point for these meteors is in the constellation Aquarius.

30 july 2013  Mercury at the highest elongation:  19.6°W at 11:00.

For those who like my astro pictures or my articles, it would be great if you could pay attention on advertising that appear in the blog by a click and maybe one day I could buy a better telescope.
