Mars, Saturn and Zubenelgenubi close (25-27th August 2014)

Evening sky on Monday August 25 looking west as seen from Adelaide at 22:00 (10:00 pm) ACST in South Australia. Mars and Saturn are at their closest under the head of  Scorpius. Similar views will be seen elsewhere at the equivalent local time (click to embiggen).

After slowly drawing together Mars and Saturn are at their closest tonight (the 25th) tomorrow night and Wednsday night (the 27th).

Mars and Saturn form a triangle with Alpha Librae (also called Zubenelgenubi) at this time. Go out tonight or over the next few days and have a look.

Here is an animation of them drawing together from the 18th to the 223rd.
