If you happen to see two intensely bright "stars" in the morning sky, you are probably looking at a pair of dazzling planets. On February 11, look at the east to see the conjunction of the planets Venus and Jupiter in the dawn sky. The two planets shine brightly together like beacons or like two 'mini suns'. Venus and Jupiter are two of the brightest planets in the night sky, making them relatively easy to find because they should appear much more luminous than any stars. If you have clear skies, you should be able to spot these eye-catching worlds with your naked eye. Three Planets Join the Moon Before Dawn If you look east shortly before sunup on February 9 and 10, use the waning crescent Moon to see the three morning planets: Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. No matter where you live worldwide, you’ll need a clear sky, an unobstructed eastern horizon and probably binoculars to tease these worlds out of the glow of morning twilight. The planets are easiest to see from Earth’s Southern Hemisphere. Stay Tuned!
