    Dear Dr. Hunt,
    Thank you for the information about Jupiter and Spica positions in the morning skies. I watch their movement across the morning skies, looking South from the “Hofje van Oirschot” in Haarlem, Netherlands.
    With kind regards,
    Dagmar Cornand

    The graphs showing planet visibility at evening and morning are really clear. What software do you use to produce them?

      Thanks for your kind comment. I use the US Naval Observatory’s computer program MICA for the raw data. Morning Sky and Evening Sky charts are generated using Microsoft Excel.
