Over the course of the next week, we have a treat: Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter–all in a row, in a conjunction. Tonight is the center of the activity. You can take them all in one photo. I hoped to see it last evening for two days in a row, but the weather didn’t permit sight of such, and tonight isn’t looking any better. You need to watch in the twilight hour after sunset. Look up just above the horizon in the on the far side of the Sun. See NASA’s article: What’s Up: Skywatching Tips from NASA – NASA Solar System Exploration

I live in a wooded area so you can never see things like this when they happen. That is really awesome though!
I was hoping to see this on the 10th but it was very cloudy.
I never had the chance to see this, I’m so disappointed! Thank you so much for sharing this video.
