Mars and Saturn Tonight, September 6, 2014


Mars and Saturn shine from the southwestern sky this evening after sunset.  (Click the image to see it larger.)  Mars is nearly 8 degrees east of Saturn and nearly 15 degrees west of the star Antares.  During this month, watch Mars approach and pass Antares.  A year ago, Venus  shared the evening sky with Saturn.  Notice where Saturn was a year ago compared to Zubenelgenubi and Zubeneschamali in this posting from 2013.
