Astronomy with Dave Eicher this week

A bejeweled gas giant and our planet's natural satellite will combine in a spectacular evening display this week.

This week, the Moon will swing by first degree Saturn. Look to the southwest on the evening of Saturday, January 13, and you'll see a young crescent moon 8° west of Saturn. The following night, Sunday the 14th, the Moon will be 7° east of Saturn.

If you're using binoculars or your Celestron telescope, you'll have a short window of time for your best view of Saturn's rings—after the sky darkens, but before Saturn slips into the haze near the horizon. It will be set at 8:30 PM local time.
