Mars, Moon & PLeiades Conjunction
MARS, MOON & PLEIADES CONJUNCTION
Overnight tonight (after midnight and before dawn in the Eastern USA time zone)
Gaze up to behold the wonder and beauty of Mars, the Moon, the Pleiades in the sky together, in conjunction.
Also nearby are Aldeberan and the Hyades. Mars glows red/orange, Aldeberan also glows orange. Mars will be much closer to the Moon on August 19. Then the moon moves close to Aldeberan overnight on August 20.
Great viewing both nights!
Below are the photos I took around 3 am from my front yard...
