By week’s end, Jupiter is going bye-bye and Venus is closing in on Saturn. (The blue 10 degree scale is about the width of your fist at arm’s length.)

By about 5pm tonight, planet Venus’ light appears as the Evening Star in the afterglow of sunset above the southwestern horizon. Also following in the path of the Sun, planet Jupiter, below and to the right of Venus, is dimmer and closer to the Sun. Binoculars will help locate Jupiter before it sets at 5:29pm today; it will soon disappear from view. Saturn, dim compared to Venus, is a few degrees above Venus today and closest to the Evening Star tomorrow and Wednesday. Going forward, Venus climbs higher above the skyline and Saturn loses altitude. Venus sets at 6:31pm this evening; Saturn at 6:46pm.
