- July 10: Jupiter and Neptune only 1/2 degree apart (with Jupiter 12,000 times brighter), an event that will be watched as Galilei once saw the same!
- July 18: Another Pleiades occultation by the Moon, visible from Europe.
- July 22: Total eclipse of the Sun, visible from India, China and the Pacific - this page has all the links you could possibly want about it! On the occasion of this extra-long eclipse we also have the winners of a logo contest, a big and a shorter review of science at eclipses, a portrait of an eclipse scientist and her adventures and the IAU eclipse dictionary.
- July 28: The Southern Delta-Aquarid meteors peak, should reach 10...20 meteors/hour. Alpha-Capricornids and early Perseids can also be seen.
- July 31: The Moon occults Antares in parts of the world.
In other news the first meteorites from the Arizona fireball have been found! There are also updates about the bolide itself - what it looked and sounded like, plus video & pics - from June 29, 27 and 25 and another newspaper story. • New analysis has become available about the Steinheimer Becken impact crater in Germany, which was apparently an iron body and unrelated to the Ries impactor (another story) and the Vitim impact from 2002. • Nice comet pictures show C/2005 L3 (McNaught) very close to a galaxy (the scene 2 days earlier), 22P/Kopff with a long tail, C/2008 Q3 (Garradd) and C/2006 W3 (Christensen).
• Planet-wise the NEB action on Jupiter (this blog quoted!) as an animation, another "ad" for the mutual events of Jupiter's moons and the darkening of Saturn's rings documented while the Sun moves into the ring plane. • Three personal stories involving Alan Hale and a young SN discoverer and a weird "solargraph" picture. • Finally many have imaged the LCROSS spacecraft as results here, here, here and here show - the old Apollo missions, by the way, were also observed by telescopes on Earth.
