My thanks to Kevan Hubbard for the following message:
“There is a very impressive alignment of Uranus, Venus and Mars in the west at present, shortly after night fall.
You get the see the dimmest and brightest naked eye planets in one field! The moonlight makes it hard to see Uranus, but Mars and Venus are easy, however a pair of binoculars will bring out all three. Uranus is the first star like object upwards of Venus.”
