Sure, it's cold outside, but the February evening sky offers plenty of hot action.

First there's the beautiful presence of Venus, the "Evening Star," well up in the southwest after sunset. On what date will a thin crescent Moon join it for a spectacular evening pairing? You'll have to download our audio sky tour to find out!

Next comes is a penumbral eclipse of the Moon on the 9th. Where's the best place to see it? You'll have to download our audio sky tour to find out!

Have you ever wanted to find Saturn in the sky but don't have a clue where to look? Thanks to our downloadable audio sky tour, you can find it in the evening sky easily — and take in come celestial sightseeing along the way.

There's no better way to enjoy a little casual stargazing after dinner than to listen to our popular audio sky tour for the coming month. It's a 5-megabyte MP3 file that runs 5m 18s.
