DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Tonight will be a great night to get out and look at planets and stars. We have entered the new moon phase, meaning the moon won’t provide us with any night light. This should make planets, especially Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, easily viewable with the naked eye. You can see other planets with a telescope. If you get away from city light pollution you should be able to see across our Milky Way galaxy by looking into the SW sky.

Mars, Jupiter and Saturn best views.
