June Planetary Parade

Mars is "zooming" across the evening sky, on it's way to a meeting with Saturn later in June. Mars and Saturn are bright enough to be seen, even if you live in a region with more ambient light (light pollution), so anyone can enjoy this show.

To make it even easier, the moon will be right by Mars on the evening of June 7 and right by Saturn on the evening of the 8th. So you can use the moon to locate the two planets, and then continue to watch them as they come together over the course of the next couple weeks.
