Dance of the Planets (part 6)

The planetary Dance continues, Venus (brightest object bottom right) is moving up towards Mars (the dim object nearby), and tomorrow and the next night they will form a line with Mercury (the next brightest object nearby). Mars and Venus will be less than 30 arc minutes (about half a finger width) apart.

After this encounter Mercury and Venus will climb towards Spica (the bright object near the top of the image).

As always, click on the image to enlarge it.
