Hang in there Hercules

July 12, 2014
By Mike Lynch , Marshall Independent

One of my favorite constellations of the summer is Hercules the Hero. First of all, while it's not the brightest of constellations, it's a large one, the fifth largest constellation in the sky. Secondly, I also love the Greek mythological story behind our stellar hero, and lastly, I love all of the wonderful celestial treasures within it. A word of advice here...I would hold off checking out the constellation Hercules until a little later this coming week, say Thursday or Friday. The next several nights, that very bright full moon is going to make it tough on you. By late in the week, it won't rise until later in the evening, and it won't be quite as full and bright.
