    Planet Positions 2018

    The attached chart, Planet Positions 2018, shows the positions of the planets, sun, moon, lunar node and eclipses for calendar 2018 over the twelve tropical months.

    Evening stars are to the left of the sun, while morning stars are to the right of the sun.

    Notable events include total lunar eclipses in February and July, and partial solar eclipses in February, July and August (NASA eclipse page)

    The visual highlight of the year is on Saturday 28 July, when Mars conjuncts a blood moon, with all the other visible planets up in the west.

    The year begins with no planets visible in the evening sky.

    Jupiter and Saturn are approaching their 2020 conjunction, and form a wide triple with Mars, in the morning at the start of the year, moving to the evening after their respective retrograde conjunctions with the full moon in May and June.

    Venus gradually rises as evening star, culminating in the west in August.

    Mercury conjuncts the new moon on 19 March, 15 July and 10 November.
