Your guide to constellations, deep-sky objects, planets and events, Tonight’s Sky, Highlights of the February Night Sky
Evening Planets
After the Sun sets on these cold February days, look for a bright “star” blazing high overhead. This is actually not a star at all but the planet Jupiter.
A telescope will provide a better view.
Mars rises in the east late in the evening. The ruddy planet will climb higher into the sky throughout the night.
Constellations and Deep-Sky Objects
The winter night sky, filled with brilliant stars, presents one of the best celestial views.
Orion, the Great Hunter of Greek mythology, dominates the winter sky. This constellation is among the easiest to recognize. It is full of young stars, dying stars, and many nebulae.
