planets aligned

We sat on our patio furniture on a warm, star-filled night. We saw an evening star rise. I looked up on my cell phone that the star was Venus, as I was not certain if it was Venus or Jupiter. Then, as the night wore on, we saw Mars appear, a bit higher and a bit over to the left in the evening sky. We read that Jupiter was in the eastern sky, but our house blocked our view. So we looked at the sword on Orion's belt, and talked about our day.
