icon 32 Degree Angle

The closest, most easily recognizable constellation close to the 12th Planet's approach is Orion, high in the winter sky in the Northern hemisphere. During the summer months of June/July Orion is behind the Sun and comes forth just before sunrise in the Eastern horizon as July fades into August. By January, Orion will be high in the southern sky at about 2200 hours. If you stand looking south, search approximately two thirds of the way towards straight up, and wait for Orion and it's highly visible "Belt" to cross the center of the sky. Where the 12th Planet approaches from Orion, it dips below the ecliptic during the years just before passage to an angle of 32 degrees below the ecliptic.
