This Month's Morning Moon and Planet Show

 It rained last night, but the skies were clear enough this morning that I could see Jupiter, Venus and the Moon close together in the East before my Koningsdag bike ride.

Four Morning Planets

 I saw the four morning planets at around 5:30 this morning. It has been pretty cloudy and hazy, but there was a brief window of opportunity. Venus is moving to the lower left, so the planes will be even more evenly spaced on Saturday, and maybe the best on Sunday.

Saturn and Mars together in the dawn sky.

 Saturn and Mars made a cute pair in the pre-dawn skies this morning. The are to the upper right of bright Venus in this image. Mars is to the upper right of Saturn.  I was fortunate to get a small window between the clouds and haze to see them.  Tuesday morning Mars will have dropped down to the lower right of Saturn. The two planets should be a little bit closer together as well.
