Venus has moved away from the Sun, with its beacon now visible low in the west 30 minutes after sunset. Shortly after twilight Jupiter arrives, located between mag. +1.0 Spica (Alpha (_) Virginis) and mag. +1.1 Antares (Alpha (_) Scorpii). Saturn rises later in the evening (22:00 EST mid month), followed by Mars; they are only 1.2° apart on 2nd. The morning sees Neptune return (rising 03:30 EST mid month), then Mercury. This inner world is best seen in the latter half of April.
