Last evening around 9:05 PM, having finally gotten some clear weather, =20=

I went to the cemetery behind me to observe the close configuration of =20=

Venus, Jupiter and Mercury. While I was waiting, I saw a bird flying =20
past that I first thought was a single chimney swift but as it got =20
nearer, it turned out to be a common nighthawk.

If it is still clean this evening, you can go out around the same time =20=

and see them! Look to the left of where the Sun as set, along a line =20
going up from the sunset location at an angle of about 45=B0. The first =20=

bright object you see will be Venus. Jupiter will be at about 6 =20
o'clock relative to Venus and is next in brightness. You may need to =20
wait for it to get a bit darker to see Mercury, as it is the faintest =20=

and will be at the 11 o'clock position from Venus and about twice as =20
far away as Jupiter.

=46rom out point of view, relative to Venus both Jupiter and Mercury =20=

are moving away from it, and quickly at that! If it is clear tomorrow =20=

night, they will all be along a straight line with Mercury moving even =20=

higher to the left.
