14 Jun    Before dawn, the Pleiades Cluster is less than a fist-width to the moon’s upper left.

15 Jun    Watch Jupiter and Venus line up between Regulus and Pollux in the west. At dusk, Venus becomes visible first. Jupiter is next, 4 finger-widths to the upper left. The stars come last: Pollux, 1½ fist-widths to Venus’ lower right, and Regulus, 1 fist-width to Jupiter’s upper left.

17 Jun    Early this evening, far to the upper right of brilliant Venus is the Big Dipper, its handle pointing straight up.

19 Jun    Low in the west at dusk, Venus is 3 finger-widths above the moon, while Jupiter is 3 finger-widths to Venus’ upper left. In the next few days, the planets grow closer until they pass closely on the 30th.

20 Jun    Venus and Jupiter are to the moon’s right tonight. Regulus is 4 finger-widths to the moon’s upper left.
