THE PLAN­ETS

Sky at Night Magazine - - THE SKY GUIDE -

Jan­uary evenings are slim pick­ings with Mars the only naked-eye planet vis­i­ble, set­ting about 23:00 AEDT. Morn­ings see Venus low in the east, around an hour be­fore dawn. As men­tioned above, Jupiter is not far from Venus, ris­ing around 02:00 AEDT mid­month. Mer­cury con­cludes a poor morn­ing re­turn, be­com­ing too low to ob­serve and in the Sun’s glare by mid­month. As this speedy mes­sen­ger de­parts, Saturn races past, re­turn­ing to the morn­ing, ris­ing at 03:00 AEDT by month’s end.
