CELESTIAL TRIANGLE: This morning in Kerman, Iran, Mohammad Javad Fahimi stood beside the historic Jabaliyeh Dome and watched a lovely triangle rise in the eastern sky:
"It was Venus, Saturn and the crescent Moon having a get-together," says Fahimi. Seeing the planets arrayed thus beside the 900-year old mausoleum was "a wonderful way to begin the day."
Observers in other time zones would have seen the same trio--almost. The Moon is moving toward Venus, so the shape of the triangle has been shifting from time zone to time zone, each apparition a little different than the one before.
