It was cloudy here last night but tonight should be clear so I'm stoked! I have heard that the best time to look is 45 min after sunset in the SW sky, but I hope it's not too close to the horizon because we have some tall buildings here! In degrees, how far above the horizon will they be?
I also saw this post and wonder if it's true?
Personally, I'm looking forward to the 'great conjunction', when Jupiter will pass directly in front of Saturn. That will occur next on February 16, 7541 (seriously.) I'm hoping that if I diet and exercise I can be around to see it happen. By the way, if you're busy that day or if it is cloudy (does Accuweather's long range go out this far?), it happens again later that year on June 17th, 7541.
my response to that was this:
I didn't even know that could actually happen lol. I'd settle for a nice lunar occultation of either Jupiter or Saturn or both in the same night
Do you have any numbers for when that might happen next?
