Another bedroom window view during lockdown of the dance of the outer planets in the morning sky. Jupiter is on the right, with Saturn above and slightly to the left of Mars on the day of their conjunction. Mars will fairly rapidly move eastwards away from the two gas giants, before its very favourable opposition in October this year.
