Venus, Saturn and Mars This Morning, February 3, 2014


Morning Star Venus sparkles in the southeastern sky this morning as seen from the Chicago area. (Click the images to see them larger.) The planet is rapidly approaching its greatest brilliancy during this morning appearance.


Meanwhile farther to  south (to the right of Venus), Mars and Saturn appear against a starry background.  Mars is about 6 degrees above Spica.  Saturn is near Zubenelgenubi and Zubenschamli (Libra).  Antares (Scorpius) is easily visible.
