Friday 13th December 2019; 0610-0636 UT, Broken cloud but some clear gaps in the 'right area' . Used 8x36 binocular and L/S 60 spotter from bedroom window. MARS and alpha Librae separated by 1/8 th or less than the fov of the binocular with the planet slightly lower to the left of the binocular double, alpha 1 + 2. In the handheld/rested spotting scope, about 1/4 of the fov separated them. Spectacular! Regards maf.
