Happy New Year!!  The first dawn of the New Year will feature the lovely pairing of dazzling Venus and the Crescent Moon! Over the next three mornings the Crescent Moon will slide past Venus and our second brightest planet, Jupiter (Illustration 1). This awesome show, Venus, the Crescent Moon and Jupiter, will happen again starting on January 30 (Illustration 2). Venus and the Crescent Moon will make a close pairing on January 31. The big show of January will be a Total Lunar Eclipse the night of 20/21!! See highlight section for Eclipse timeline.

For our hike, we will head out one hour after sunset. This will be at 6:00pm at the beginning of January and 6:30pm by months end. Grab your winter coat, hat, gloves, warm socks and boots. Do you have your Starry Trail map and binoculars? Let’s enjoy!
