For all you night owls

Jupiter is the bright light high in the sky that settles closer and closer to the western horizon as the month goes by. The Southern Cross is low on the southern horizon (yep…that figures!), and is nearly upside down; but throughout the month it slowly rises and turns on its side.


For all you early birds

If you have been out partying for New Years Eve and going home before dawn then you will see the crescent Moon next to brilliant Venus.  The Moon will then move further away each night but Venus will remain the Morning

Star all this month. Near to her is the constellation of the Scorpion, which will become more and more visible through the month. Look overhead to see Saturn close to the bright star of Spica.
