A Good Reason to Wake Up at Dawn
July 3, 2012: Summer is a good time to relax, sleep late, enjoy a break from school or work. Waking before sunrise is just not done.
This summer is a little different. To find out why, set your alarm for dawn.
Every morning this July, the two brightest planets in the solar system will put on a show before sunrise. Look out any east-facing window to see Venus and Jupiter, shining side by side, so close together you can hide them behind your outstretched palm. It's a great way to start the day.
A new ScienceCast video previews the July 2012 sunrise sky show. Play it!
