Mars shines brightly in the constellation of Libra, the Scales. Jupiter is also brighter than any of the nighttime stars and is visible around dusk in August. Jupiter is in the constellation of Leo the Lion for the next few months, while Saturn is in Scorpius the Scorpion. Mars travels around the Sun more quickly than either Jupiter or Saturn. It is currently in Libra, making its way to Scorpius. Halfway between Jupiter and Mars, you may also be able to make out the bright star Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo.
