Equality at Sunset

9 p.m. CDT

9 p.m. CDT

   An interesting arrangement of the two largest planets in our solar system, Jupiter and Saturn, is taking place at sunset local time. Jupiter and the last of the winter constellation are over the western horizon as it is setting. While above the eastern horizon is the planet Saturn as it rises with the stars of spring. For the next few evenings each planet will be approximately the same altitude above their respective horizon at 9 p.m. local time as the banner graphic at the top of the page shows.
