Today Sunday 19 January at 1 pm CST, (19 UT), the Sun in its apparent eastward motion along the ecliptic, moves out of the constellation Sagittarius the Archer
and into the constellation of Capricornus the Sea Goat
. This is the true or actual position of the Sun as opposed to the pseudoscience of astrology which usually has the astrological Sun one constellation ahead or east from the Astronomical Sun’s position. Which will be tomorrow when the sun is not in the astrological sign of Aquarius.
This is a corrected page that should have been posted on Sunday 19 January.
Ok, ok! I got ahead of myself and hit Publish not only too soon on the wrong day,
and I also misread the date/time on my astronomy software and had that incorrect on the graphics as well.
