Massing of Venus, Saturn and Mars, August 8

Evening sky looking North-west as seen from Adelaide at 7:00 pm on Sunday August 8. Mercury is below Saturn, Venus and Mars. Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time. Click to embiggen.

The planetary dance continues. Saturn and Venus are at their closest on Sunday, August 8, forming a tiangle with Mars above. Below, Mercury is clearly visible in the late twilight/early evening sky.

Keep watching, on Thursday the 12th the crescent Moon visit Mercy, then on the 13th it visits Venus, as Venus and Mars draw closer together.
