Mars and Saturn Tonight, August 19, 2014

Mars and Saturn appear in the southwestern sky this evening during twilight.  (Click the image to see it larger.)

Tonight Mars is less than 2 degrees from Zubenelgenubi and less than 5 degrees to the lower right of Saturn.

Look at the grouping each night for the next week as Mars moves past Zubenelgenubi and Saturn.
