In the Sky Tonight - Asteroid 1 Ceres

Take your last chance tonight to see asteroid 1 Ceres, a magnitude 8.8 object in the night sky!  You'll need a telescope to spot this near the Constellation Cancer.  It will pass 1 degree south of the star Chi Cancri in the northwest horizon.  The best time to catch the asteroid with your telescope will be near the end of twilight tonight.
