Mars and Saturn close tonight (10 July)

The north-western evening sky around 7 pm local time as seen from the southern hemisphere (click to enlarge).

Mars has been heading towards Saturn all week, and tonight it catches it! Mars will be less than a finger width away from the ringed world (that's around 40 arc minutes for the technically minded). A lovely sight in the early evening (hopefully I will get a break in the cloud).
