Jupiter remains visible in the early evening as a bright star-like object towards the north and is close to the Moon
on the 6th. On the 27th Venus is close to the crescent Moon. The best time to view the Moon using binoculars or a small telescope is a few days either side of the first quarter Moon on the 2nd. On the 10th a total lunar eclipse occurs with the full Moon entering the Earth’s shadow at 11.45 pm and exiting at 1.58 am on the 11th. Summer solstice on the 22nd is the longest day of the year and gives Sydney 14 hours and 25 minutes of daylight. Crux (the Southern Cross) is just above the southern horizon making it difficult to locate.

I live in South Africa, and i have seen the same thing. This could be Jupiter or Venus, and yet, the media would let us know of any planet to look for that would shine very brightly in the Southern Hemisphere. This i think are being kept secret form us. Dont ever take your eyes for the skies! you dont know what you might miss. Keep your eyes on the prize!

I didn't say it did.
The person I was replying to asked what he may have been seeing from his garden. If his garden is on the north side of his house he may be seeing Jupiter. But since he said his garden is in the back and the front faces west...edit on 12/27/2011 by Phage because: (no reason given)
