Venus Meets Mars

I don’t know how many more planet pictures I will get in this series.  However, tonight Venus is meeting Mars as Saturn departs the scene.  The picture I selected tonight shows Venus just below the orangeish Mars as a plane flies just beneath Saturn.

Saturn will keep departing the scene stage right while Venus and Mars will slowly appear a little lower in the sky each evening as the slowly pull apart over the next few weeks.
