    Default Venus and Saturn!!



    Has anyone been able to get a look at Venus and Saturn together in the morning.
    I am on the west coast USA. I got up before dawn this morning and the damn clouds were ONLY in the east where the two planets were rising. Maybe it was exhaust fumes from all the black friday shoppers????
    oh well... gonna try again tomorrow.
    I am SO lost in this vast universe

    [top]November 27th Dawn: Venus and Saturn come together


    Venus and Saturn together in Virgo
    Image: Stellarium/IM
    Before dawn on Nov. 27th Venus will lie in Virgo (close to boundary with Libra), just 0.8 degrees to the lower right of Saturn. A nice grouping. They differ in brightness by 4.6 magnitudes, so that Venus will be almost 100 times brighter than Saturn!

    I hope y'all don't mind me re-posting this here also from another thread ! As mentioned, Monday morning is going to be close also along with Tuesday. Enjoy !

    Here's another link describing Monday's morning sky with the two planets. :
