This pic is from astronomy dot com. Does any one know which pole is shown?

There was a "conjunction" the other night--Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn visible in the night sky. Did anyone here see it?

@Setanta,
Yeah, that's why I looked up astronomy dot com, to find out about what I was seeing in the night sky on my walk to the grocery store. I could identify chartreuse Venus, but not the others. They're all red, and Saturn is quite a bit smaller than Venus.

@InfraBlue,
That's apparent and not real. Venus, the Hell planet, is about the size of the Earth, but it is much closer to us. Saturn is a gas giant, but it is much farther away--it's on the other side of Jupiter, which is on the other side of Mars, with the so-called asteroid belt in between.

@InfraBlue,
Is this a Polish joke?

@InfraBlue,
There are NO close-ups of Jupiter - All is cgi.

@Setanta,
I'm not sure what a conjunction is but four planets are now visible, from the West to the east, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. Saturn is dimmest of the four, and Mars is the most Eastward and is red.

It's been a nice month for planets.

@coluber2001,
Go out anywhere about an hour after sunset where you have a nice view of the Southern sky and you'll see four planets all lined up nicely. Don't wait too long or else Venus will set, but you'll see starting from the West going east Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars. It's a great sight and it doesn't happen all that often. The Moon is in a waning crescent stage so the sky is dark.

Jupiter is in Libra, although Libra is a faint constellation, but to the left of Jupiter is the glorious constellation of Scorpius. If you're in a dark enough location and have a good view of the sky, you can see the whole constellation of Scorpius, tail and all.

@coluber2001,
I believe a conjunction is when planets align up with the celestial north pole.
