Over the course of the next week, we have a treat: Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter–all in a row, in a conjunction. Tonight is the center of the activity. You can take them all in one photo. I hoped to see it last evening for two days in a row, but the weather didn’t permit sight of such, and tonight isn’t looking any better. You need to watch in the twilight hour after sunset. Look up just above the horizon in the on the far side of the Sun. See NASA’s article: What’s Up: Skywatching Tips from NASA – NASA Solar System Exploration

There are more tips and pointers on watching the January skies in the YouTube video:

You are able to track monthly activity at NASA’s site: What’s Up: Skywatching Tips from NASA – NASA Solar System Exploration. I hope to have photos before it is all over. I will keep you posted, and if you see, please enjoy!!
