Jupiter and Venus are both visible after dark. Look West–you’ll see two bright objects low on the horizon. The brighter object is Venus, and the other one is Jupiter. If you have a binocular, you may be able to see one or more moons of Jupiter. You’ll have to hold it steady–try placing them against a stationary object, like a tree or fence, to minimize shaking.

And to the left and above Venus and Jupiter, not quite as bright, is Saturn. You’ll need a telescope to see the rings, though. Watch Venus and Saturn approach each other over the nights, especially between the 9th and 13th.

You can use this diagram as a guide. It can be downloaded at skymaps.com. The orientation for the map is set for South, with the middle of the circle representing straight overhead. Turn the map upside down when looking North.
