TERRIFIC TRIO In Thursday's Evening Sky...

Saturn, Venus and Antares will line up in the evening sky Thursday, October 27th. The sunset occurs at 6:49 PM, that means you should head outside around 7:20 PM and look low in the southwest sky. You will find a terrific trio of two bright planets and a colorful star.


The two planets will appear to form a nearly perfect vertical line with Saturn at the top and Venus just below. At the end of the line and right above the horizon, the red star Antares may be visible as well. I would suggest using binoculars to get the full effect as twilight may make it difficult to see Antares. In terms of the weather, clouds will be breaking down as temps settle into the mid 50's.
