    Under Sky Notes, how about adding visible planets and daytime stars like Jupiter and Spica (I think) this morning? What were the two visible in the east around 6:50am? Saturn and? Thanks for considering this. Thanks for doing this blog. Carol Cherin 250 Mayo Rd 05462

    • Hi Carol,
      Thanks for your comment. I quick and easy place to find out what’s up in the morning or evening skies is to check out Sky and Telescope’s “This Week’s Sky At A Glance” page. Here’s a link:

      Looks like Jupiter and Spica were right next to each other in the southwest. Saturn would have just been rising at around 7:00am so probably not visible to us as it was behind the mountains. Venus last night was spectacular! It was at its closest to earth just yesterday.
