Saturn, Jupiter...and comets on the way

Listen to this story
Clear nights in the forecast, and the waning crescent Moon make for a great opportunity to bundle up and get outside for some sky-watching.

St. Lawrence University physics professor Aileen O'Donoghue tells Martha Foley that Jupiter and Saturn are high and bright in the sky these days. Aileen's advice: bring good binoculars because there's a good chance you could see Jupiter's famous moons.

And she has news for later this winter, too. There are two comets on our way.
