Southern Skywatch August 2012 Edition Up
Venus is in the morning sky not far from Jupiter and is close to the crescent Moon on the 14th.
Jupiter is in the morning sky near the Hyades, on the 12th the crescent Moon and Jupiter are very close (time to look for Jupite in the daylight). In Darwin there is an occultation of Jupiter.
Mars forms a line with Saturn and the bright star Spica on the 14th. Mars is close to the crescent Moon on the 22nd forming a triangle with Saturn and Spica.
Mercury is lost in the twilight.

The view from Adelaide will be similar to the view everywhere else in Australia at the equivalent local time. There will be some minor differences in elevation but not enough to make a real difference.
Occultations and eclipses will be different though, as those are very latitude dependent. But I ususally give local descriptions for them.
