January evening skies over Hawai‘i
Venus dominates the evening twilight shining in the west at mag. -4. This month will see the reappearance of several planets in the morning sky. By the end of January, Jupiter, Mars and Saturn will be visible before dawn in the east. Look for Comet PANSTARRS (C/2017 T2) at mag. 9 as it passes through Perseus and Cassiopeia.
