Christmas Sky

Have you ever witnessed the skies above after Jupiter kept arriving past sunset? The trinity of Sun-Jupiter-Moon was so apparent in the October-November 2011 days. I only have binoculars to view the actual skies; nevertheless it lets you see the adjacent Ursa Major and Minor (something's you never forget from a past life - that's a pun); the critical thing is ensuring what you see is what you intend to get in Jotiz.

Post Christmas, I have followed the skies - Mars and Saturn are in the western horizon after sunset - not the best positions to be in considering the amount of light that is still around after Surya the Sun has set.
