Look up: A new view

If  you happen to be out and about at around 7PM look off to the west a bit. You’ll see Jupiter shining brightly about 30 or 40 degrees above the horizon and just below, is Venus shining away.

 

The night sky during winter gets more interesting to me. It is when Orion is in clear view in the southern sky, and a host of other systems become visile, some with the naked eye, some with the aid of binoculars or telescopes.

So if you can brave the cold here in the northern hemisphere, look up! And take heart, we’re sliding ever so much close to the start of Spring.
