    Thanks, Loren for your invitation to watch CBS Sunday morning. I also found this photo that may interest Carl and the Illinois members.

    Venus and Saturn Meet in the Morning Sky

    January 7, 2016 By Brian Ventrudo

    "Look to the southeastern sky before dawn on January 9 to see Venus and Saturn make a close approach to each other before sunrise. Venus is the brighter of the two, about 60x brighter than Saturn. The two planets make their closest approach at about 4h Universal Time when they are just 1/10 of a degree apart. This timing favors observers in Europe and Africa."
