U of M June Starwatch =ow in the south, 11 p.m. June 30 By Deane Morrison Treats are in store for us at both ends of the short summer nights this June. Evenings belong to Saturn, a beacon in the southwest. Not sure which object is the ringed planet? Look the evening of the June 10, when a waxing moon sits below and between the bright star Spica, in Virgo, to the east and Saturn to the west. Northeast of Saturn shines brilliant Arcturus in Bootes, the ploughman. Just east of Bootes hangs Corona Borealis, the North- ,\\; Teaspoon ern Crown, set off by its bright- est star, Alphecca (also called Gemma). Moving east once again, we see the upside-down form of Hercules with its signature hour- glass shape. Low in the south, the sinuous form of Scorpius scrapes the hori- zon as it reaches toward the rather mundane form of Libra. Note the scorpion's red heart, Antares, which boasts a diameter 700 times that of our sun and ranks among the largest stars known. If the sun were as big as Antares, it would extend Well beyond the orbit of Mars, almost to the half- way point between Mars and Jupi- ter. But Antares was not always so big; it expanded as it aged, and now belongs to a class of old stars called red supergiants. By about five billion years from now our sun will also begin to expand as it nears the end of its life, but it will become a red giant, not supergi- ant, and so won't balloon up to nearly the extent as Antares. Still, it will likely engulf the Earth, but SAGtTTARIUS /\\; Antaresf''-. t / / / (/" Teapot  / . ,/ SCORIUS ./" t UniversRy of Minnesota Starwatch June 2011 by that time our oceans, lakes and rivers will long since have boiled away. Directly east of Scorpius, the Teapot of Sagittarius is poised to pour its contents onto the scorpi- on's tail. And don't miss the tiny Teaspoon of stars sitting above the Teapot's handle. Morning treats start with the rising of Jupiter, about two hours before sunup on the 1st and earlier every day thereafter. Its brilliant yellowish globe climbs quickly and dominates the eastern pre- dawn sky. Mars follows Jupiter, but climbs slowly. Look for the Red Planet on the 28th, when the eastern sky will be stacked (from top to bottom) with the Pleiades star cluster, a waning crescent moon, Mars, and the combination of the V-shaped Hyades cluster and yellowish Aldebaran, the eye of Taurus.
