Tonight's Sky for June 11: Moon Meets Antares

Tonight, the Moon will make a close pass with Antares, the bright red star that is the alpha (brightest) star in the Zodiac constellation of Scorpius. The best news: no telescope is required, non is a dark sky as Antares shines at first magnitude, numbering it among the brightest stars in the sky. Too see the show, simply head out and look South just after dark. See that red star close to the Moon? That's Antares.
