Star Dust in February

Where will Jupiter and Mars be this month?

Former Wyandotte resident Roger Ptak has his own newspaper article based on info collected during a career of studying the stars. Go to http://freepressonline.com/main.asp?SectionID=55&SubSectionID=81&ArticleID=702&TM=32861.8 to find out where Jupiter and Mars will be this month. Most people look at the stars and don't know the difference between a Pleiades and an Aldebaran, but they're there and planets can be seen more often than not.

There's also a possibility of seeing a comet with the naked eye. Possibility you say? This is it's first time around? Unfathomable. This is from the Jet that used to be on the Comets.

Another piece of info that you may have see or heard about is the asteroid fly by. No one is concerned about this even though it will come in between earth and some of our operational sattelites. It's only the size of half a football field so who's worried. The math is on our side.
