In a couple minutes the ISS will be crossing my part of the sky and the sky is clear here so the stars and planets are waiting hellyes

Jupiter is still out following the Moon with below that looking West (I don't get much of that angle thanks to tall trees)

Also Sirius, Mars, Mercury.

The last few days of February and first few days of March offer a rare chance for people at mid-northern latitudes to see at least a half dozen of the night sky's brightest objects simultaneously, 30 to 60 minutes after sunset.

In order of brightness these are the Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Sirius, Mars, Mercury

Gotta admit that celestial show last night was damn impressive. The crescent moon, the two bright stars - one above, one below.

It it Turkey's flag that bears that scene?

Was on the road returning from a HS basketball game and got to watch it drop into the Western horizon for a couple hours... very cool.

Hell Yeah!

I got out early enough to see the Moon and the planets before they were set off in the west behind the ridge smile

Jupiter up next to the Moon and a REAL bright Venus down below!

Around 9 or 10:00 your time you can look in the opposite direction and see Mars rising in the east and it will get closer each night followed by Saturn around midnight.


I will try to get out a bit earlier tomorrow and try to get a picture.
