NASA is back again with its monthly roundup of what to look out for in the sky over the coming weeks.

Axar.az reports that kicking right off with Thursday and Friday, Mars finds itself in the Beehive Cluster, a group of stars also known as Praesepe or M44 that’s around 600 light years away.

“The pairing will make for great viewing through binoculars or a small telescope, with a sparkle of faint stars surrounding the rust-coloured disk of Mars,” NASA said on its website.

To make it easy to pick out Mars and the Beehive, try one of these excellent astronomy apps on your smartphone.

Throughout this month you you can also witness Mars and Venus appearing to move closer together in the western sky after sunset. NASA notes that a crescent moon will pass through from June 20 through June 22, making for a striking spectacle at dusk on June 21.
