Mercury and Uranus will appear in January


Today’s Video of the Day from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory describes all of the incredible sights you can see in the sky this month.  

On January 20, Uranus will be visible between the Moon and Mars. Locate the crescent Moon and Mars within two hours after it gets dark and look for the faint, bluish disk of Uranus. 

During the last two weeks of January, Mercury can be seen just after sunset. Find a spot with a clear view, and Mercury will appear to the west just a few degrees above the horizon.
