I'll go out tonight and twirl around for Mars

March has been a great month for viewing the waxing moon, Jupiter & Venus.
When Venus passes from the evening to the morning sky on June 6, 2012, it’ll swing directly in front of the sun. This is called a transit of Venus. Transits of Venus are rare, happening only two times in the 21st century, with none in the 20th century.

I think Mars can be found within Leo: will advise.

Western Sky

When I saw the Moon and Venus last night, I looked for Jupiter, which has been nearly aligned with Venus in the evening sky the last couple of weeks, but it seemed to have set. I'll step out a bit earlier tonight and see what there is to see.

what planet are you on?

Directly below Venus towards the horizone the next brightest object is Jupiter. Now turn 180 degrees and you will see mars shining a soft red. Magic!
