Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus form a straight line above the southeastern to southern horizon before dawn. Of the three planets, Venus and Jupiter are the two brightest. you can also see the bright star Antares, which sits slightly below to the west of Jupiter. The red supergiant star is one of the brightest stars in the entire night sky. On March 27 to 29 the moon will pass by Jupiter and Saturn in the predawn/dawn sky. The waning crescent moon will pair up with brilliant Jupiter at dawn on the 27th. The duo will fit within the field of view of binoculars. Jupiter ranks as the 4th-brightest celestial object in all the heavens, after the sun, moon and Venus. Even low-power binoculars will reveal the gas giant’s four main moons, also known as the Galilean moons. https://earthsky.org/tonight/moon-jup... On the 29th, look for yellow-colored Saturn perched above the right of the moon halfway up the southeastern sky at dawn.
