>should see Mars, the Moon, Spica, and Mercury.
>This week Venus is that VERY bright object you see in the west after
>sunset. Venus is currently in the constellation of Sagittarius. If you
>have a pair of binoculars or a telescope, you should be able to see a

>This is going to be the last mention of Pluto other than the constellation
>in which it can be found. There aren�t any observers that I know of who
>visually observe Pluto. It is sooo faint that you need to do either CCD

>the constellation of Ophiuchus (Coffin).
