Daily cosmobite: Saturn and the Moon

Saturn and the Moon on the evening of 31 August 2014. Chart Nick LombAfter dusk each evening we can see the ringed planet Saturn in the north-west sky. After its close approach on Monday and Tuesday evenings the red planet Mars is still above and close by. Tonight the crescent Moon is below and to the left or west of Saturn and so we have an interesting configuration in the sky with two planets and the Moon.
