Hey Space Placers!

Been outside at dusk lately or up around 11 p.m.? If you haven't now is a good time to do so.

In the west two bright planets are starting to make their journey towards one another - Venus is the bright planet in the west and Jupiter is to the east of Venus. Over the next few weeks these two luminaries are going to get closer and closer so you want to start watching now.

Mars is getting brighter by the week and is up in the eastern sky by 10 p.m. On the 9th Mars will be just to the left of the Moon. Watch Mars over the next few weeks get brighter and brighter.

If you have a camera mount it on a tripod and take pics of these 3 planets at 1-5 seconds at ISO 200. Keep them so you can see how the view changes over the next few weeks.

Clear Skies to all!
