Fort Wayne Astronomical Society, General Meeting Tuesday,
February 17, 7:30pm, University of Saint Francis Schouweiler Planetarium.
Program: Astrophotography and the MOO Group.
The February Night Sky: Venus and Jupiter are stars of the February night sky. Gleaming Venus reigns in the west after
sunset every  night, pairing with a dimmer Mars and, on Feb. 20, the crescent moon. Jupiter is at its brightest for 2015. It rises
at sundown in the east and crosses the sky to set at sunrise in the west. The full moon visits it early in the night of Feb. 3-4.
The last quarter moon is near Saturn in the southeastern sky an hour before sunrise Feb. 12 and 13. New moon: Feb. 18.
