First Morning of Summer

Our astronomical summer arrives at 5:14 a.m. on Tuesday morning, about seven minutes after sunrise. There has been plenty of evidence already that summer is here. But that precise moment makes the rest easy.

If you were up earlier in the morning and looked to the east you’d see the bright last quarter moon shining right next to the bright planet Jupiter. The two are in the zodiacal constellation Pisces. Look slightly to the east of the two for the red planet Mars. A good deal farther to the east you’ll see the brightest of planets, Venus.

Sunset on this day is definitely a late one, one of the latest. Sunset will be at 8:19 p.m.
