Menke Observatory, near the Wapsi River Environmental Education Center
The evening sky will be dominated tonight by a First Quarter Moon, the best phase for observing its features.
Its glare means deep-sky objects will be hard to spot most of the evening, and Jupiter is now lost in the Sun's glare, but Saturn is still prominent in the southeastern sky. Come immediately after sunset, and you might also be able to see Mercury and Venus close together low in the west.
