Sadly, the Partial Solar Eclipse on October 23rd was totally clouded out here in Milwaukee. We will not get another chance at a solar eclipse until August 21, 2017. But consider some planning for that one. The total eclipse path goes relatively nearby (as close as Missouri). Click here to see the path.
The Total Lunar Eclipse on October 8th was spectacular with our clear skies. If you missed it, our next opportunity comes next year in the early evening hours of September 17th.
Mars is very low in the southwest after sunset.
Jupiter has returned! It`s in the East rising around 2:00AM.
Venus is now too close to the sun to be seen. It will return to the evening sky in January.
