The three bright morning planets shine from the southeast this morning. As Mars moves farther eastward, the three planets are equally spaced along the ecliptic. Saturn is 5.7° from Jupiter and Mars.

Mars continues to move away from Jupiter and Saturn, while Jupiter inches closer to Saturn for their Great Conjunction later this year.
