Mars, Jupiter & Saturn
Mars is in a great position for observing: high in the sky all evening. Jupiter will be low
in the West and sets at 6:48. Saturn sets at 9:11 and will be a beautiful object to
observe. The Great Square of Pegasus will be overhead. A good test of your eyesight
will be if you can see any stars within the square. M31, the great galaxy, found in the
nearby constellation Andromeda, is always impressive in a telescope. It is 2.5 million
light-years away. The constellation Cassiopeia can be found above the Great Square.
It is shaped like a “W”. To the East you will find the Double Cluster: a two-star cluster
that is magnificent in a telescope. Sunset is at 4:49 pm.
Prominent constellations:
Pegasus (the Horse)
Taurus (the Bull)
Cygnus (the Swan)
Aquarius (the Water Bearer)
Cassiopeia (the Seated Queen)
