Three years ago this month, I wrote "Unlike closer Uranus, Neptune can be seen only with optical aid, so it is unlikely that any sleepless prehistoric nomad, like my fictional Raki,* identified Neptune as a "wanderer" 10 millennia ago. Uranus revolves around Sol in 84.3 Earth years; you know people who have been around longer than that." Turns out I've now been around just over one Uranus year. Nobody has been around for one Neptune year, 164.8 Earth years. Don't bother looking for Jupiter in July. It is now disappearing into the sunset.
At 5:51 a.m., June 21, our longest day, Summer Solstice officially begins astronomical summer. Earliest sunrise is about a week earlier, latest sunset about a week later. For refreshers on why those don't all occur on June 21, type "earliest summer sunrise" in a search engine. Mosquitoes and ticks will be abundant soon. Jupiter dominates the SE evening sky now but by June's end it will set only an hour after Sol. Mercury is barely visible in bright evening twilight in the WNW now but will soon disappear into Sol's glare. It will be between us and Sol on June 19, but not directly.
