21 Feb    Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras

22 Feb    Tonight catch a glimpse of ever-elusive Mercury, which is less than 2 weeks from its greatest elongation, 18 degrees east of the sun, on 5 March. After sunset, you have about an hour to see Mercury less than 3 finger-widths to the moon’s left.

24 Feb    Jupiter, Venus and the waxing crescent moon line up in the west this evening. The moon is closest to the horizon with magnitude -4.2 Venus 1 fist-width to the upper left and magnitude -2.2 Jupiter 1½ fist-widths beyond Venus. Only 5 percent of the moon’s surface is illuminated.

25 Feb    Venus is 1 finger-width to the moon’s lower left this evening.
