    There is indeed a nice tight formation right now. From Earth, the Sun,
    Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are all within a few
    degrees azimuth of each other. Here's the configuration as of 5-May-2000
    at 00:00 GMT:
    Object   Declin     Azimuth
    Sun      16d 17'   295d 55'
    Moon     14d 58'   286d 39'
    Mercury  14d 07'   297d 39'
    Venus    11d 59'   299d 43'
    Mars     20d 44'   288d 36'
