If clouds clear in time, there's a terrific show in the western sky after sunset tonight. It is a close lineup (upper left to lower right) of planets Saturn and Mars, the bright star Regulus and a delicate crescent moon. Just step outside after the sky darkens and look west. Binoculars will help. It is busier up there than it looks. NASA's Cassini spacecraft is circling Saturn. Mars has three active orbiters and three surface robots. Craft from Japan and China are orbiting the moon.
