I was short of an image this week, so went looking at Martin Lewis' website, where I found this excellent composite of the three bright planets currently in our evening skies. Martin adjusted them all to the same image scale and notes that they were at 17 degrees, 34 degrees and 18 degrees elevation respectively.
