Massing of Venus, Saturn and Mars, August 8
The planetary dance continues. Saturn and Venus are at their closest on Sunday, August 8, forming a tiangle with Mars above. Below, Mercury is clearly visible in the late twilight/early evening sky.
Keep watching, on Thursday the 12th the crescent Moon visit Mercy, then on the 13th it visits Venus, as Venus and Mars draw closer together.
