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:Welcome to this issue of Qué tal.
This month all of the sky viewing for planets is the morning skies.
All five of the visible planets, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter
are spread out above the horizon from east to west before sunrise.
This is a leap year so February has an additional day, and with that
we also have the waning gibbous Moon near Mars on that extra day.
