SKY SIGHTS AHEAD: The moon is now rising after midnight, appearing half full this Wednesday in the southern dawn. Mars is still very bright in the southeastern evening sky; Mars has a steady orange glow.
Even brighter than Mars is the planet Jupiter, appearing high in the western evening sky. The third planet in the evening sky is Saturn, appearing to the left of Mars in the late evening sky.
Venus is the brilliant morning planet in the eastern dawn. All these planets shine steadily.
