Nice Morning Conjunction
When I was outside trying to image the LCROSS impact this morning, I couldn’t help but noticing that we have three planets fairly close together in the morning sky, Venus, Saturn and Mercury. Mercury is the lowest of the three, Venus is the highest and Saturn is in the middle, all in a fairly nice line. They will be nice for the next few days. Here is what you will see tomorrow morning (map for 5:30 am in Tucson…click to embiggen).
Over the next couple of days, Saturn will get progressively closer to Venus until they are right next to each other on October 13th. This should be a spectacular conjunction and I will be luck enough to be in Bryce Canyon. Yeah, I am thinking pictures!
