Description
No moon. Clear sky. Beautiful sunset. Warm night. Wind in the wheat. Planets on the horizon….. What a night! This grouping of planets is only visible for about 30mins, 45mins after the sun sets. This awesome sight will only be visible over the course of the next 3 days. Mercury is in the same area but is so close to the horizon and sets so quickly that it slips behind the horizon before the horizon is dark enough to be able to see it. Left to right: Mars, Venus, Saturn
