On the evenings of March 3rd, 4th, and 5th the two inner planets Mercury and Venus will become visible, but low, over the western horizon shortly after sunset local time. Due to its faster orbital speed Mercury will pass Venus as this animated graphic is showing. At their closest the two will be separated by about 1.5o.
This should make for good viewing with binoculars and for a great photo opportunity. The two are close enough to just barely fit in a 25 mm eyepiece field of view on a 6″ reflector..
