Dark Skies January Update

The sky chart shows the stars for mid January at around 8pm and we can finally start the new year with a planet in the evening sky, although it's not the easiest one to spot! Mercury will put in an appearance in the south west skies for the first week in January, but although bright, it will only be some 7° above the horizon at sunset. The rest of the bright planets are found in the morning skies and this is still where the action is.
