Celestial Trio on September 2010
The celestial trio (Venus, Mars, Spica – brightest star in constellation Virgo) is visible a few minutes after sunset to early evening on Monday (Aug 30.) and Tuesday (Aug. 31) in the Philippines. This alignment can fit the field of view of any binoculars.
On Sept. 2 and 3, the trio will almost form a straight line and this is visible starting at 7:00pm.
I’m still hoping for clear skies here in the Philippines!
To the stars! 🙂
