Planets put on a show BBC

An eye-catching group of three planets will shine in the western sky at dusk on Thursday and for the first half of April. Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn will appear close together. The brightest of the three is Jupiter. Look low in the west about an hour after sunset and you cannot miss it. To Jupiter’s upper left is the slightly less bright Saturn. Mars is quite a bit fainter, but it has an unmistakable orange tint.
