Mercury rising at 04:54 am and setting at 07:23 pm with a 84% of surface illuminated. Mercury would be orbiting the Sun at a distance of 0.31 astronomical units (AU) and would be found at a distance of 1.20 astronomical units (AU) from Earth. Given the planet elongation, the observer would see Mercury at an angle of -12° 50' 04.1" with the Sun. The brightness would be -1.21 this day, as measured by the planet magnitude.


Venus would rise at 02:37 am and set at 05:05 pm. 43% of Venus would be illuminated by the Sun. Venus distance from the Sun would be 0.73 astronomical units (AU) and its distance from the Earth 0.62 astronomical units (AU). The angular distance in the sky between Venus and the Sun would be -45° 23' 28.8".


Mars would look like 91% full, orbiting the Sun at a distance of 1.54 AU and be at 1.79 AU from Earth. The planet would be seen rising at 11:05 am and setting at 10:17 pm. The angular separation of the Sun and the planet, with Earth as the reference point, would be 59° 14' 18.2". The brightness of Mars, that is its magnitude, would be 1.22.


Jupiter’s distance from the Sun would be 5.43 AU and 6.34 AU from Planet Earth. Jupiter rising and setting times would be 08:02 am and 08:56 pm respectively. Jupiter would appear with a 99% illuminated fraction of its surface and a magnitude (brightness of the star) of -1.55. Its angular separation between the Sun would be 22° 54' 20.0".


Saturn would rise at 08:57 am and set at 09:27 pm, appearing 99% full. The angular separation of Saturn from the Sun, as seen by the observer, would be 34° 04' 01.9", its magnitude 1.17. Saturn would orbit the Sun at a distance of 9.49 astronomical units (AU) and would be located at a distance of 10.31 astronomical units (AU) from Earth.


Uranus would appear 99 full, its brightness being 5.55. It would be seen rising at 01:44 pm and setting at 11:44 pm. Uranus would be 18.76 AU far from the Sun and 18.72 AU far from Planet Earth (average distance). The observer, looking up into the sky, would see Uranus with a 91° 01' 58.3" angle of separation from the Sun.


Neptune rising at 03:59 pm, and setting at 01:28 am, its magnitude (the degree of brightness of a star) being 7.9. The difference between the celestial longitude of the Sun and that of Neptune would be 119° 22' 01.8". At 30.28 AU distance from the Sun and at 29.77 AU from Earth, 99 % of Neptune would be illuminated by the Sun.


Pluto would be seen as 99% full and would have an elongation of 60° 27' 36.6". It would orbit the Sun at an average distance of 30.13 astronomical units (AU) and be located at an average distance of 30.61 astronomical units (AU) from Earth.
