Hey Space Placers!
Tomorrow morning, 7-7-12, before the Sun rises (and starts heating up the day - we are forecast to hit 103 temperature and that's BEFORE the heat index!!!) there is a nice line up in the east.
Jupiter, Venus and the orangish-reddish colored star Aldebaran all align in an almost straight vertical line. Jupiter leads the way with brilliant Venus next and the red giant star last in line.
The little star cluster above this trio is the Pleiades or Seven Sisters.
There will be a few other early morning alerts that will follow this month involving these two planets.
Enjoy the view and the coolest part of the day.
