Adelaide Habel writes from Pikesville: "Can you tell me the best Web site for identifying planets that I see in the Baltimore night sky?" Yes, space cadets, you can see actual planets from Baltimore with only your eyeballs. Currently, Venus gleams in the west after sunset. Saturn's up there, too, and Jupiter rises low in the southeast by midnight. My favorite guide is www.heavens-above.com. Enter your location, and you'll find many cool features, including a "whole sky chart" that puts planets on an interactive star map.
