Solar Siblings

Venus, Saturn, and Mars in the Morning Sky

This morning Venus (bright planet left central image) is joined by Saturn and Mars, the tiny pair to the upper right of the image. Saturn and Mars are so close together that they could both be covered by the disk of the Moon if it were in the right position. The trio of planets will slowly spread apart and will be joined by bright Jupiter later this month. It will be a lovely spectacle to watch morning by morning, especially when the crescent Moon joins the parade about three and a half weeks from now.
