It's nearly full Moon, so you might need an excuse to go outside and brave the frigid weather. Here's a great one: treat yourself to the majesty of Saturn. Right now the planetary gem is shining in Leo at magnitude 0.0, and it is currently the brightest it will be for many years to come. Saturn rises in twilight and is well up in the east for telescopic viewing by 10 p.m. It reaches opposition (opposite the Sun in the sky and therefore visible all night) on February 10th.
