In the night sky for June

The ‘supermoon’ season of 2022 continues with the Full Strawberry Moon on June 14. June’s full moon is the second of four back-to-back “supermoons” and comes just a week before summer in the Northern Hemisphere

Five planets will align in the pre-dawn sky this month to offer a dazzling astronomical scene.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will all be visible to the naked eye at the same time for the first time in 18 years. Making it even more special, the planets will appear in their natural order from the sun, according to Sky and Telescope.

The last time this alignment was visible in planetary order was in 2004, and the next one won’t come around until 2040, according to AccuWeather.

The best time to see the celestial phenomenon is in the hour just prior to sunrise. In the Bay Area, that means getting up around 4:30 a.m.
