Menke Observatory - Near the Wapsi River Environmental Education Center
The Moon is just past First Quarter phase, so it will dominate the sky all evening.
Jupiter is still visible, although lower toward the west. Mars is almost due south at dusk, while Saturn is just rising in the east and will be visible most of the night.
