Eyes on the Sky: Feb 6 thru Feb 12

 

Find Uranus in the night sky by way of Venus all this week as the brightest planet moves past the seventh planet. Download the PDF chart at eyesonthesky.com. Also highlighted is Mars as it nears opposition next month, as the Moon passes by the Red Planet this week. Don't miss the Messier objects that Mars is near this week, but wait for the Moon to revolve out of the way first. Includes where to spot Jupiter in the evening sky and Saturn in the morning sky this week.
