THE PLAN­ETS

Sky at Night Magazine - - THE SKY GUIDE -

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.
