What's Up for February 2014

NASA (Feb. 3, 2014) — Music. Jane Houston Jones: What's Up for February. See all the planets, plus mission updates from comet and asteroid missions Dawn and Rosetta. Hello and welcome.

Mars rises before midnight, joining Jupiter as they gracefully arc from east to west. Spot Mercury and Venus in the southeast sky before dawn, and Mars and Saturn higher in the morning sky.
