Nice ongoing planetary alignment

    Just bringing to everybody's attention that there's a very nice alignment of planets in the morning sky. Venus, Jupiter and Mars are within a few degrees of each other, next to the constellation of Leo. In two weeks' time, while they'll spread out a bit by then, the Moon will also swing by.
    If you're up early in the morning (about an hour or two before sunrise), look up. Or snap a photo if you've got the means.

    Nice. I'll have to check that out in the morning.
