What's Up for June. A planetary trio at sunset plus asteroids you can see.
Hello and welcome. I'm Jane Houston Jones from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
The month begins with a gorgeous trio of planets: Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, low on the west-northwest horizon.As the month progresses, Jupiter slips into the sunset while Mercury and Venus rise higher in the sky.
Asteroid 1998 QE2, which safely passed by Earth on May 31,is visible in the night skies only through medium sized or larger telescopes.
