Another entry in our Planet Dance, Venus is rising higher, Mercury and Jupiter are dropping lower, and the triangle formed by our trio becomes more acute (see previous shots here, here and here). Venus and Jupiter will continue to move closer, leading up to their spectacular close approach on the 27-29th.
