Until late August the sky remains in the twilight throughout the night in Kendal. Nonetheless, the Ursa Major constellation (The Plough) remains almost directly overhead above where you may be able to observe the galaxies M81 and M82.
For the conjunctions of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn with the Moon and details of the Red Spot visibility times see See also Ian Morison’s Night Sky this Month on the Jodrell Bank site.
