Tonight's Sky in Amasa Back, Sep 16 – Sep 17, 2021 (7 planets visible)
Mercury rise and set in Amasa Back
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 Amasa Back
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.
Thu, Sep 16 ↓9:04 pm
Mars rise and set in Amasa Back
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.
Thu, Sep 16 ↓7:43 pm
Jupiter rise and set in Amasa Back
After sunset and most of the night.
Jupiter is visible during most of the night, but it is best viewed in the late evening hours after sunset.

View in the early morning. Bring binoculars.

Neptune rise and set in Amasa Back
Up almost all night. Use binoculars.
Neptune is roughly in the opposite direction of the Sun in the sky, and is, therefore, visible most of the night. This is the best time of the year to view the planet. Very faint, use binoculars.
