Tonight's Sky for July 31: Scorpius Due South at Dusk


It's mid summer now and there is a great sight bearing out this fact: the Zodiac constellation of Scorpius is due South at dusk. To see it, simply head out and look South about an hour after sunset for the bright red star Antares (the scorpion's heart), which rides low in the Southern sky. As the twilight disappears, the full constellation will pop into view, horizon-allowing.
