10/19/2016 – Ephemeris – Jupiter is in morning twilight, Venus in evening twilight

October 19, 2016

Ephemeris for Wednesday, October 19th. The Sun will rise at 8:04. It’ll be up for 10 hours and 46 minutes, setting at 6:50. The Moon, half way from full to last quarter, will rise at 9:58 this evening.

Low in the east this morning at 7:15 Jupiter might be glimpsed in the twilight. Jupiter’s rise time is at 6:28 a.m. Venus, Saturn and Mars are in the evening sky. Venus is briefly visible after sunset, low in the west-southwest. It will set at 8:16 p.m., following the Sun’s earlier setting times. Venus is still moving a bit southward and will still be hugging the southwestern horizon for the next month or so, but it’s high enough to spot with a reasonably low horizon. Mars and Saturn can be seen in the darkened sky after Venus sets. Mars is way out to the left of Saturn passing above the Teapot of Sagittarius. Saturn, spectacular in telescopes with its rings, will set at 9:09 p.m. Mars will set at 11:11 p.m,

Times are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan. They may be different for your location.
