Venus-Mars Conjunction
12 July 2021

Viewing conditions were not as good as yesterday (a bit of haze due to humid air), so only Venus is visible in the full frame view above. The Moon is now above and to the left of Venus, which is visible above the street lights.

Mars is barely visible in the enlargement below, to the left and slightly below Venus. Venus and Mars are as close as I will be able to see in this conjunction.
