We’ve just taken these pictures from the back of our boat.
It’s a New Moon, but to the left is Venus and just above it (between 12 and 1 o’clock) is Mars, the red planet.
Sadly, my camera is only a cheapie, so you can’t see Mars in our pictures as it is only just visible from where we are.
A fellow boater lent me her binoculars, and it is really fascinating that Venus and Mars are in this position at the moment.

“Those were the days” when I could see the night sky so clearly. Then I moved to more developed areas and have to contend with the orange glow of communities……….. but I love widespread power outages! 🙂
Must admit we miss the clear skies of our village in Lincolnshire. However, from the Marina it’s not too bad and we’re getting clear views Orion’s Belt, The Big Dipper and Cassiopeia (admit they’re the only ones I know for sure!)
Isn’t it rare to be able to see Mars? Venus I see most nights here 🙂
From what we can understand, Mars being in such close proximity is unusual. It was the fellow boater who told me what was going on. We probably see Venus regularly too and just didn’t know it. Pretty bright though!!
