Event details

If conditions permit, and you have good views of the SW horizon, then January 13th/14th 2015 gives an opportunity to view all the planets and Comet Lovejoy.

On January 13th just after 1700 Mercury and Venus will be close together and VERY low on the SW horizon. Next move up a little to Mars and Neptune also in the SW. Then onto Uranus in the South and as an aside have a look for Lovejoy in the SE. Lovejoy will make a nice triangle with Alderbaran and the Pleiades.

Jupiter rises later in the evening followed by the Moon and Saturn before dawn.

This can be repeated over the next 3-4 days, before Mercury starts to fall below the horizon.
