Image Details:

Mars sweeping past Saturn, with Jupiter nearby. This is the fifth in a series of five images showing the rapid eastward angular motion of Mars (just above the trees) relative to Saturn (just above and slightly to the right of Mars) and Jupiter (bright planet to the upper right). See my previous posted images from 3/22/2020, 3/26/2020, 3/28/2020, and 3/30/2020. The conjunction of Mars and Jupiter was on 3/20/2020. The conjunction of Mars and Saturn was yesterday (3/31/2020).
