So you are telling me to wake up at 7am in 18 degree weather with a windchill of 10 and look east with binocs at a couple of dots in the cloudy sky?

Sweet. I'm there.

Great! Nice to see that you've got your priorities straight. :-b

You can see them quite clearly without binoculars. With binocs you're just going to see larger dots - Jupiter will appear to be a cream-colored circle. You might see some extremely tiny dots around Jupiter with your binocs - you should be able to see three of the four Galilean moons at about any given time - but they also might be overshadowed by the planets' light.

I would skip the binocs. In fact, if you have a decent view of the East from your house and you're not around too much light pollution you should be able to see the show fine from your window at home. I'll be heading about five minutes north of my house, but then I'm a nerd.


;-) :-b

I actually thought about getting up early to check this out until I saw how close the planets were to the horizon. Tallahassee is full of trees and I'm not even sure where I could go to get an unobstructed view of the horizon. Nebraska is probably perfect for star gazing. Thanks for sharing though, Knapp!

I attempt to sleep in on the weekends and am a slave to routine. I'll set the alarm clock, but I'm not promising anything. That snooze button's pretty big.

Man, I live on a planet. Why do I need to see them?

:-b

I was fascinated by astronomy as a kid, but got away from it as I got older. I'll probably get a telescope for the kid so we can go out and see if we can't find that Big Dipper or something...
