Sky at the glance

When you head outdoors tonight, take Sky & Telescope's podcast with you for a guided tour to the night sky. Learn what constellations are visible, find out where and when you'll see the planets, and catch each month's celestial highlights, from meteor showers to eclipses.
  1. Jupiter, in Virgo, shines like a beacon in the southeast at nightfall. It's highest in the south by 11 or midnight.
