Venus, Saturn, and Mars

Viewed the triangle of Venus, Saturn, and Mars visible last evening at dusk near the western horizon. There was good naked-eye visibility just before 9 PM CDT. Venus is by far the brightest object of the three, dominating the western sky even earlier that evening. Saturn was positioned about 40 degrees above and right of Venus. Saturn is a little less white and much less bright than Venus. Mars was positioned about 45 degrees above and to the left of Venus, maybe twice the distance from Venus as Saturn.
