Welcome to this issue of Qué tal. Here you will find useful observing information
about the visible planets, our Moon and other
moons, the Sun, as well as various 'things' celestial.
these web pages you will find monthly star maps for either the northern
or southern hemisphere that are suitable for printout. Animated
images are utilized to illustrate celestial motions such as orbital
motions of the planets, and other solar orbiting objects, or apparent
and real motions along the ecliptic and the local horizon. Regular
features include plotting the monthly positions of the visible planets
using heliocentric coordinates; following moon phases; conjunctions; the sun's
apparent motion and the Earth's real motion along the ecliptic.

At A Glance: This month there is a shift in planet visibility as Venus moves too close to the rising Sun for morning viewing, and Mars
is also lost to the setting Sun's glare but in the evening. Mercury is best visible for the first half of the month in its best evening viewing for this year.
Jupiter remains very visible as an evening object, and Saturn rises around midnight local time and is visible as the only morning planet for a while.
Get ready for Comet Pan-STAARS
