Venus, Mercury and Jupiter in the Twilight (3 August 2016)
For the first time in ages the clouds cleared so that I could see the line-up of all five bright planets in the evening. Venus was very obvious even shortly after sunset, followed by Jupiter then Mercury by about half an hour after sunset. Regulus took a bit more time to come into view. Hopefully it will all be clear tomorrow as well, for when Venus and Regulus are joined by the Moon.
