Astrocast.TV's Our Night Sky with Carolyn Collins Petersen

This month we have some great solar system objects to look for.Mercury and Venusy appear in the southwestern sky for an hour or more after sunset through much of this month, along with the red planet Mars. Jupiter rises around 8:30 or so, and is high in the sky by late evening. If you try to find it, be sure to search out its moons with your binoculars or telescope. Saturn is an early morning object throughout January. On the 16th, just before dawn, it appears very close to the crescent Moon.

Every month is a great month to go out and explore the stars and planets starting a couple of hours after sunset. Carolyn Collins Petersen, is your guide to skygazing.

Now, don’t forget to bring along a pair of binoculars or a small telescope, and dress for the weather.
