Planet Almanac for September 1, 2016 to October 31, 2017

This Year in Planets by Robert Victor

Following on his poster and talk at MAPS 2016, Bob Victor has compiled this planet almanac to benefit of planetarians in planning their sky observations and interpretations in the coming year. His work here covers the dates September 1, 2016, to October 31, 2017, and includes monthly evening sky charts plotted for 40 degrees north latitude.

He also includes a colored line chart, familiar to many, showings the set and/or rise times of planets up to 5 hours after sunset through the year.

Thank you, Bob, for contributing so much to our information base.
