The bright planets are now confined to the morning sky where youâ€™ll find Venus and Jupiter dominating the view before sunrise. The two planets had a spectacular conjunction on the 26th, and while Venus draws away from the giant planet the pair will remain a beautiful sight to the naked eye. If you look carefully youâ€™ll see the much fainter ruddy glow of Mars just below the brighter pair. Over the course of the week Venus will close in on the red planet, and early risers on the 3rd will see them less than a degree apart. This sight will be worth getting up early for; just remember that it will be best seen at around 5:00 am Standard Time!
