Our long stretch in a slammer of gray, drippy skies appears to be over, at last. Look for sunshine today, and brilliant winter constellations in a cold January sky tonight. It's a good time to get acquainted with Venus and Jupiter again as these naked-eye planets leave the sun's glare and return to the night sky. That's Venus shining low in the southwest just after sunset - the first star-like object to appear as darkness falls. Up before sunrise? Don't miss giant Jupiter, the brightest object gleaming in the southeast.
