This afternoon I learned that one of my grandaughtersr has been learning about the planets at school. She was very keen. I have explained to her mother that before sunrise tomorrow it may be possible to see venus *and* mars. I have sent down the polar sky chart from the nautical Almanac app and other instructions. My worry is that venus will be low in the sky and may be behind a hill.
The weather forecast is good for tomorrow and I am hoping that a 5year old will be able to tell her teacher that she has seen mars. I plan to go outside between 6am and 7am tomorrow local time to check and if neccessary phone instructions.
