It's a little too hazy to drag us off the sofa and out to a mediocre
sidewalk astronomy night. And none of the other astronomers are
available tonight, it seems.
In the meantime: Try really hard to wake up early tomorrow morning!
There is a great planet lineup worthy of a wake-up call this week. The
lineup of the three planets just above the rising sun in the east has
been visible all month long, culminating in a tight cluster of the
planets Venus, Mars and Jupiter from now until month end. Sunday
morning, the brightest of the two Venus and Jupiter are very close
together -- from our earthly vantage point. Don't miss Mars below the
two bright ones. Fainter, but worthy of a look! Just use you eyes,
binos if you have them.
So step outside, look East and enjoy the show! Here's the lineup
