Tonight's Sky for August 31: Conjunction of Mars, Saturn, and the Moon

Don't have any plans for this evening? Well, good, as there will be quite a sight in the sky worth taking a look at. Tonight and tonight only, Mars, Saturn, and the Moon will be meeting up low in the Southwestern sky at dusk. To see the show, simply head out and look Southwest about an hour after sunset. The Moon, well, it's the Moon. As for the accompanying stars, the reddish one is Mars and the other is Saturn. Cloudy tonight? Well, come tomorrow, the planets will still be there but te Moon will be a good bit higher.
