Venus and Mars visible early dawn next several days

The next several mornings, Venus and Mars will be passing by closely to each other. This event will be visible to the human eye or through binoculars during the early dawn hours the next several days.

Venus will be close to around 100 times brighter than Mars each morning. Both planets will look to pass within one degree from each other from our view on earth. You will have six more attempts to view this occurrence as the last morning will be February 25th.

When looking to the southeast in the early morning hours, a bright Venus will be accompanied by an even dimmer and smaller looking Mars to the lower right of it.
