With a clear, cool night expected in central Maine tonight, take a look up in the evening sky and see something truly out of this world.

Look to the west shortly after sunset to get a good view of Venus, Mercury and Mars. With clear skies and a waxing crescent moon, they should be shining brightly in the evening sky.

Find an unobstructed horizon in the direction of sunset, and bring binoculars, if you have them, to enhance the view.
