Jane Houston Jones from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory provides an overview of what is in the night sky this month, including a pretty parade of planets: Venus shining brightly at dusk, while Jupiter watches from overhead; Mars comes up before midnight, and you can see Saturn near sunrise.

    Last night I saw 2 moving objects (satellites in the eastern sky south by south west) in the night sky around 12:00AM eastern which slowed down and finally stopped. Were there new communication satellites placed into stationary orbit or was this some other pheromone?
