Saturn, Mars and Jupiter will be visible in night skies this month with tiny Mercury toward the end of May. We are in for a real treat as four of the best planets to see will be on show. Venus shines bright in the mornings just before sunrise. (more…)
Tonight, just after sunset, Venus, Jupiter and a thin crescent Moon will line up and form a close thin triangle in the evening sky.
If you have clear skies, this spectacle will almost be impossible to miss after the Sun has set.
See the below diagram for positions of the crescent moon, Venus and Jupiter – They will be an awesome sight!
