Three planets – dazzlingly bright Venus and fainter Mars and Saturn – can be seen in the east before sunrise now. Mars and Saturn are fainter than Venus, but were very noticeable around April 4 and 5, 2022, for being near one another in the morning sky. Their conjunction – when the two planets had the same right ascension on our sky’s dome – happened at 22 UTC on April 4. Enjoy these photos from the EarthSky community. Thanks to all who submitted!
