Planetary alignment

Yep, the end is near. 

If you want to see this you're going to have to look soon.... Mercury's neck and neck with Venus at 9PM, maybe 3.5 degrees (still less than a fingerwidth at arms length) due south of the larger planet.  1.5 hours above the western horizon.  (Hold your hand out at arms length, put the top finger holding up the celestial body you're interested in and fold the fingers that go below the horizon.... every finger that fits between the cestial  body and the horizon is 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, (I know you're waiting for this with baited breath) the sun's edging toward Cabazon, but still a hair north of the base.... I'm betting on July 4 to see it galump down the smokestack.
