Night Sky: View the Dragon’s Eyes in Draco throughout June

June 18 6:48 p.m.

June is prime time for spotting Rastaban and Eltanin in the constellation Draco, according to EarthSky.

From tropical and subtropical latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere, the stars Rastaban and Eltanin shine quite low in the northern sky (below Vega). In either hemisphere, at all time zones, the Dragon’s eyes climb highest up in the sky around midnight (1 a.m. daylight-saving time) in mid-June, 11 p.m. (midnight daylight-saving time) in early July and 9 p.m. (10 p.m. daylight-saving time) in early August. But from temperate latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere (southern Australia and New Zealand), the Dragon’s eyes never climb above your horizon but you can catch the star Vega way low in your northern sky.
