Venus Meets Regulus

Evening sky as seen from the southern hemisphere at around 6:00 pm local time on Thursday 12 July, click image to enlarge it.

If you have been watching Venus these past few days, you will have seen it make a triangle shape with Saturn and the star Regulus. Now Venus is edging closer to Regulus, and will be at its closest to the brightest star in Leo on Thursday.

After this encounter, Venus and company have a few interesting encounters left, so the evening sky is a pretty interesting place for a while (and Yes, the Mars-Moon encounter was clouded out).
