The days may be getting longer, but the nighttime sky is still just as bright. It’s time to haul out those old lawn chairs, rustle up a pair of good ‘ole binoculars, and stretch out beneath the twinkling summertime sky. Dean Regas, outreach astronomer at the Cincinnati Observatory, co-host of the PBS series Star Gazers, and author of the book 100 Things To See In The Night Sky, is here to give us a guide to the summertime skies. (Note: This calendar refers only to what those of us Northern Hemisphere-dwellers will be seeing in the nighttime sky. But don’t worry, Southern Hemispherians! Regas is at work on a Southern Hemisphere version of his book, due for publication in June 2018.)
