This Week’s Sky at a Glance, June 19 – 27
Leo the Lion is mostly a constellation of late winter and spring. But he’s not gone yet. As twilight ends look due west, somewhat low, for Regulus, his brightest and now lowest star: the forefoot of the Lion stick figure.
The Sickle of Leo extends upper right from Regulus. The rest of the Lion’s constellation figure extends for almost three fists to the upper left, to his tail star Denebola, the highest. He’ll soon be treading away into the sunset.
