Tonight's Sky in Mackinac Island, Sep 17 – Sep 18, 2021 (7 planets visible)
Mercury rise and set in Mackinac Island
Try after sunset.
Mercury sets shortly after sunset, so it is very close to the horizon. This makes it very difficult to observe.

Venus rise and set in Mackinac Island
View after sunset.
Venus can best be seen in the hours just after sunset. Visibility improves as the sunlight fades. Venus is visible by day, but may be hard to find.
Fri, Sep 17 ↓9:08 pm
Mars rise and set in Mackinac Island
Very close to Sun, hard or impossible to see.
Mars is just 7 degrees from the Sun in the sky, so it is difficult or impossible to see it.
Fri, Sep 17 ↓8:01 pm

After sunset and most of the night.

Neptune rise and set in Mackinac Island
Up almost all night. Use binoculars.
