Sky at Night Magazine - - JANUARY -


13 Jan­uary, 40 min­utes be­fore sun­rise AL­TI­TUDE: 3.5º (low) LO­CA­TION: Sagittariu­s DI­REC­TION: South­east Saturn is a morn­ing ob­ject too close to the Sun to be seen prop­erly at the start of Jan­uary. By the mid­dle of the month it will be far enough from the Sun’s glare to be vis­i­ble low in the south­east, given a flat hori­zon. Be­tween 12-15 Jan­uary it is close to mag. –0.2 Mer­cury; a beau­ti­ful 2%-lit wan­ing cres­cent Moon joins the scene on the 15th. At this time Saturn will be at mag. +0.9.
