When biking at work I always look at the sky. So I saw hao Mars and Jupiter came closer and closer. Yesterday morning, the moon completed it to a trio. In reality it was a quadruplet, but I missed Saturn.

I have always a small sketch book with me. So I looked for some kind of interesting foreground and found it: A pair of electrical pylons. I made a fast sketch, I needed around 10 minutes. The moon is away form the planets, but you may still look after them in the next days. May be, Saturn requires a binocular.
