Unfortunately for me, their gathering with the Moon on the morning of the 18th got clouded out.

 

Woke up this morning about 5:45, saw that the clouds had parted a bit, and rushed to grab a shot or two before the rapidly brightening dawn spoiled the view. Beautiful way to start the day!

Yeah, this morning was the first clear skies I've had in 2 weeks and finally got to see this trifecta.

 

Pretty cool

I got up early as well but the planets were still too low to get good, clear views. I don't know if I like the planets so close to each other as I kept moving from one to the other dividing my limited time up before sunrise.
