Tonight's Sky in Carlini Base, Feb 8 – Feb 9, 2023 (7 planets visible)
Mercury rise and set in Carlini Base
View just before sunrise.
Mercury is close to the Sun and can only be seen shortly before sunrise. Try finding a good, unobstructed view of the horizon.
Thu, Feb 9 ↑2:16 am
Venus rise and set in Carlini Base
Try after sunset.
Venus sets shortly after sunset, so it is very close to the horizon. This makes it very difficult to observe. Venus is visible by day, but may be hard to find.
Wed, Feb 8 ↓9:47 pm
Mars rise and set in Carlini Base
Hard to see.
Mars rises above the horizon for a short period only and remains very low in the sky, so it is unlikely to be visible.
Wed, Feb 8 ↓10:24 pm
Jupiter rise and set in Carlini Base
Try after sunset.
Jupiter sets shortly after sunset, so it is very close to the horizon. This makes it very difficult to observe.
Wed, Feb 8 ↓9:58 pm
Saturn rise and set in Carlini Base
Very close to Sun, hard or impossible to see.
Saturn is just 7 degrees from the Sun in the sky, so it is difficult or impossible to see it.
Wed, Feb 8 ↓9:33 pm
Uranus rise and set in Carlini Base
View after sunset. Bring binoculars.
Uranus can best be seen in the hours just after sunset. Visibility improves as the sunlight fades. It is quite close to the horizon, making it fainter because the light has to cover a larger distance when traveling through the Earth's atmosphere. Make sure to get an unobstructed view. You may need binoculars.
Wed, Feb 8 ↓10:23 pm
Neptune rise and set in Carlini Base
Fairly close to the Sun. Visible only after sunset. Bring binoculars (but don't look at the Sun!).
Neptune is just 34 degrees from the Sun in the sky, so it is difficult to see. You may need binoculars, but only use them when sun is down.
