Observing the Planets
Their unique orbits combine to give an endlessly changing pattern of groupings and alignments.  And yes, they are easy to find, even in the center of a city full of lights.  The morning sky contains the interesting, bright planets at the start of 2019.  We need to be patient and wait for this summer for Jupiter and Saturn to make an appearence in the evening.   Venus is now lowering in the morning sky, and is the brightest object in the southeast as the Sun is rising.    The Naked Eye Planets website is a great source for observing tips. This web page gives detailed positional data for advanced observers. The menu bar above will take you to each of the planets.   Clicking on each will take you to a page with details on where to find each for the current month.
