Over the next couple of weeks, you’ll be able to spot Jupiter and Mars moving through the constellation Taurus and past two of the sky’s most famous star clusters — the Hyades and the Pleiades (M45). This will be visible early on the morning of July 15, or any morning within a few days of that date. If you look to the east, you should be able to see Jupiter just above and to the left of the Hyades; above them, Mars will be lying next to the Pleiades.
