If you have been watching the western horizon over the past few nights, you will have seen two bright dots gradually coming closer together.
These are Mercury and Saturn, pictured here last night. Tonight (Monday) they will be at their closest, so if the weather is right why not pop out and see them. Later, why not participate in the Big Aussie Star Hunt?
Saturn is the dot above and Mercury the dot below. It was pretty windy, as the blurred trees in the image attest.
