The sky has another treat waiting for you on Monday night into Tuesday morning. 

Jupiter, Saturn and the waning Strawberry Full Moon will form a bit of a triangle in the sky.

To see the trio, just look for the moon in the late evening sky just before midnight. 

Once you find the moon, you’ll notice the bright planets nearby. Jupiter will be to the west (right) of the moon, and Saturn will be centered above the two. 

You’ll see all three celestial bodies from about midnight until just before sunrise when they’ll start to fade.

Although you’ll have no problem seeing Saturn, the ringed planet is not nearly as bright as Jupiter, which outshines Saturn by some 15 times.
