Mercury Venus SE Saturn SSE S/Mars SSW SW Jupiter (the capital letters S, E, W = South, East, and West)
The above star chart is from the University of Michigan’s Abrams Planetarium “Sky Calendar.”
One hour before sunrise FIVE planets have been visible to the naked eye for about a week and will continue into February. But on JANUARY 25, 2016, they will have the least distance span between their positions in our sky.
Check your weather report to see if you will have clear skies or cloudy. Then accordingly, SET YOUR ALARMS TO BE UP AN HOUR BEFORE SUNRISE!!!
Abrams calls it “an impressive panorama across the southern sky.”
