This evening the planet Jupiter will become visible, due west near 8 o’clock, about one quarter of the way above the horizon, with the twilight ebbing from the skies. Our largest planet gradually settles lower into the west and northwest, setting just north of west, at around 9:30.

Seemingly being poured from the bucket of the constellation Bootes, the tiniest sliver of a crescent moon will emerge in the predawn twilight tomorrow, first breaking the horizon just slightly to the right east, at about 5:50 AM.

A good view to the north gives a terrific chance to see the Queen Cassiopeia’s chair or throne lowering toward the northern horizon. She is facing to the right, looking at her husband, King Cepheus. In six months, her throne will be high above, but upside-down.
