The May Planetary Parade

If you have clear skies right after sunset any evening between now and the end of May.  Be sure to look towards the north west horizon to see Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter grouped close together.

The configuration of the three planets will visibly change from night to night.
You can read all about it and see nightly illustrations of what you can expect to see at Sky and Telescope's web site.

If we ever have any clear skies here on Bonaire, sigh, I'll try to get some pictures.
