I see Venus is moving farther north, and Mars is a bit farther south? Or am I seeing things?

The planet recently reached its greatest elongation and is currently moving closer to the earth relative to the sun, so it appears larger in th sky, and so also brighter. In June it will transit the sun (pass between the earth and the sun) and will be visible across the sun's surface. This will be the last transit of Venus for the next 100 years, so get out and watch it. Be sure not to look directly at the sun with the unfiltered eye as it will permanently damage your vision.
