Some quick and easy things to spot in the West-Southwest if you have clear skies in that direction. Binoculars are essential to see the dimmer objects. Venus is the easiest to spot--no binoculars needed to find it!
The relative positions of the three planets and Spica on Sunday night and Monday night will not be as nicely spaced as in the above picture (forming a diamond shape).
The above picture shows their positions on Tuesday night only. If you go out to look on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, you will notice changes in their positions every night! Wow!
To get a perspective on how positions change, the picture below shows their positions last Thursday. Venus and Mars were nearly touching! Or go to: http://www.skyandtelescope.com/community/skyblog/observingblog
