February 2013 guide to the five visible planets

From EARTH AND SKY NEWS:   Only two of the five visible planets – Jupiter and Saturn – will be easy to spot in the February 2013 night sky. With some diligence you might also catch Mercury and Mars after sunset.


Only two of the five visible planets – Jupiter and Saturn – will be easy to spot in the February 2013 night sky. But for the Northern Hemisphere, February 2013 provides the best chance of catching Mercury, the innermost planet, at dusk and/or nightfall until late May and early June 2013. On or near February 8 use binoculars and the brighter planet Mercury to spot fainter Mars in the glow of evening twilight. Venus will be especially difficult to see in February because this world sits close to the glare of sunrise all month long.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
