Deane Morrison is a science writer at the University of Minnesota. She authors the Minnesota Starwatch column, and in this segment, color is the theme. Venus and Jupiter draw closer to eachother this month, allowing us to better compare theirs, and the star Capella is prominent as well, which has a very special hue to check out. Antaries is another object to search for as January comes to a close, and Deane shares the latest news from NASA.
