Southern Cross Stargazer for June 29-July 5, 2014

In the evening dusk, check Jupiter as it descends onto the west-northwestern horizon. The sunlit crescent moon with dark earthshine floats a few degrees left of the King of the Planets, and the Gemini Twins hover near the right side of Jupiter. Aim binoculars to the dim Beehive star cluster about 12 degrees directly above Jupiter.
