All kinds of great stargazing awaits as we move toward the weekend:

Friday, June 19: the crescent moon has a rendezvous with the crescent Venus  around 4:30am...

Saturday, June 20: you can see a whole string of SpaceX satellites at 3:26 am (yup, there's an app for that), and the sun reaches its highest point in the sky at 4:44pm  ...

Sunday, June 21: there's another string of SpaceX satellites passing right overhead Sunday morning at 3:29am, and even though you have to watch it online, you can see the annular eclipse of the sun that day, too.

Oh yes, and cats and Flat-Earthers, this week on Astro Bob's Backyard Astronomy.
