Tonight's Sky for July 14: Moon, Mars, Saturn Triangle

Want to see Mars and Saturn but have no clue where to look? Well, tonight's your lucky night as both Mars and Saturn will be very near the Moon. In fact, the three bodies will form a triangle. To see the show, simply go out and find the Moon. That done, you'll notice two bright 'stars' near Luna. These 'stars' are, in fact, the planets. Which is which? Since Mars is near its closest to Earth, it should be noticeably red in color. As for the yellow-white one, that's Saturn.
