Venus, Mars and Spica

Venus, the bright star Spica and Mars form a triangle in the evening sky over Adelaide on Friday 29 August. Dim Saturn is down below, just above the trees. You will probably need to click to embiggen in order to see all the stars and planets clearly.

Tonight (Wednesday, September 1) Venus and Spica are at their closest. For those of you not covered in cloud this sight should be very pleasing indeed.
