Planetary Line Up was created by Paul-Byrne

Hi all

Late December provides a great opportunity for Jupiter, Saturn, Venus and Mercury to be seen in the western sky.

As with Comet Leonard, a good eastern horizon will help, or a high mountain.  Maybe the Sugarloaf will provide a good site, if anyone wants to venture out.  We have a couple of days window, so the odds are better.

And for the real night owls, Mars can be seen just before dawn.  A chance to bag then all.
