If you’re reaching for the stars, it helps to know where they are. You can find them using Sky Calendar, courtesy of the Physics Department.

To receive free Sky Calendars for August, September and October, or to continue receiving the calendars if you already receive them, contact Veronica Golon, (651) 962-5206.

According to the August Sky Calendar, "Seven objects of first magnitude or brighter are visible." Jupiter is the brightest.

In addition to locating the brightest stars, the monthly calendars indicate where to look for astronomical objects and events.
