Our hosts Ralph Wilkins & Paul Hill tell us what to look out, and up, for in July.
- For beginner observers we highlight the constellation Cygnus, the swan.
- July 4th is aphelion, where the Earth & Sun are the most distant apart.
- Planets to look for this month are: Mercury, Venus, Mars and Saturn. Uranus & Neptune will reward as well.
- The night of July 28/29 is the peak of the Delta Aquarids meteor shower.

The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of the year. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of the year.
