Thursday May 27 to Thursday June 3
The Last Quarter Moon is Wednesday, June 2.Evening sky from Sunday, May 29 to Tuesday June 1 showing the eastern sky as seen from Adelaide at 23:45 pm ACST (just before midnight). Saturn and Jupiter form a line in the late evening sky being visited by the Moon.
Similar views will be seen throughout Australia at the equivalent local time (30 minutes after sunset, click to embiggen).
Venus is becoming more visible low in the twilight. I have been able to see Venus from 15 minutes after sunset and it will be much easier to see this week.
Mars is readily visible in the evening sky above the north-western horizon in the early evening. Mars is in Gemini not far from the bright star Pollux.
Jupiter is high in the morning sky forming a line with Saturn above the northern horizon. Jupiter is now above the eastern horizon before midnight and is close to the waning Moon on the 1st.
