Tonight's Sky in Alcove Canyon, Sep 18 – Sep 19, 2021 (7 planets visible)
Mercury rise and set in Alcove Canyon
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 Alcove Canyon
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.
Sat, Sep 18 ↓9:09 pm
Mars rise and set in Alcove Canyon
Very close to Sun, hard or impossible to see.
Mars is just 6 degrees from the Sun in the sky, so it is difficult or impossible to see it.

After sunset and most of the night.
