09/23/2020 – Ephemeris – Let’s look at a the naked-eye planets for this week

September 23, 2020 Leave a comment

This is Ephemeris for Wednesday, September 23rd. Today the Sun will be up for 12 hours and 5 minutes, setting at 7:37, and it will rise tomorrow at 7:32. The Moon, at first quarter today, will set at 11:53 this evening.

Let’s look at a the naked-eye planets for this week. Jupiter and Saturn are both low in the southern sky at 9 pm. Jupiter is the very bright one. To the left of it will be the somewhat dimmer Saturn. They are now seemly to close a tiny bit since Jupiter is resuming its eastward motion, and they will cross paths in December. Jupiter will set first at 1:11 tomorrow morning with Saturn following at 1:51. The next planet visible will be Mars which will rise at 8:44 pm. Its now down to 39.8 million miles (64.0 million km) away, as the Earth very slowly overtook it by 1.5 million miles (2.6 million km) last week as the Earth is moving nearly abreast of it. Brilliant Venus will rise at 3:53 am as it retreats toward the Sun.

The event times given are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan. They may be different for your location.

Let’s look at a comet and naked-eye planets for this week. Jupiter now rises before sunset and now is an official evening planet. It’s seen low in the southeast in the evening. To the left of it will be Saturn. The next planet up will be Mars which will rise at 12:41 am.

Newly discovered Comet NEOWISE is now visible in the evening sky A good time to start looking would be about 10:45 pm toward the northwest. The comet is trending brighter than early predictions and sports a wide tail. The comet gets its name from the NASA Satellite and mission to detect near Earth objects or NEOs in the infrared.

The event times given are for the Traverse City/Interlochen area of Michigan. They may be different for your location.
