Evan Hazard/Northland Stargazing: February stars and planets: Stay warm
BEMIDJI — In the last week of January, Mercury has a good evening apparition in the WSW. On Jan. 31, it is at greatest elongation from Sol and can be easily spotted for a few days; a thin crescent Luna will be to Mercury’s right on Jan. 31, and move up past Mercury the next few days. It’s still winter, so dress warmly if you are stargazing; you get cold faster when not moving briskly.
