Mars shoots between the Triffid and Lagoon Nebulae (17-19 February)
On the 17th to 19th Mars crosses between the triffid and lagoon Nebulae.O n the 18th, when the grouping is at its most spectacular. Mars is close to the waning Moon on the 19th which may make the nebulae harder to see.
Similar views will be seen elsewhere in Australia at the equivalent local time. (60 minutes before sunrise).
