A nice clear morning today; it was too bright out to see faint Comet Ison next to Mars and Regulus, but here’s their photo anyway – Mars is the redder and the star, Regulus is the bluer of the two ‘stars’ to the lower right at the bottom of the backwards question mark that makes up the front mane and paws of Leo the lion

Where to look for Saturn in the sky…
Saturn is low in the southwestern sky just after sunset. It is up for a few hours after sunset.
