The Full Moon is Thursday, October 21.  Three bright planets are seen in the early evening sky. Venus is readily visible in the early evening sky and is climbing the Scorpion. Venus is close to the globular cluster M19 on the 23rd.  Saturn and Jupiter are visible in the evening sky with Jupiter dominating once Venus has set.

The Full Moon is Thursday, October 21. The Moon is at apogee, when it is furthest from the earth, on the 25th.

Evening sky on Saturday, October 23 looking west as seen from Adelaide at 21:07 ACDST (90 minutes after sunset).  Venus is close to the globular cluster M19.

 Mercury  is lost in the twilight

 
Venus is visible in the early evening when the sky is fully dark.  I have been able to see Venus from just after sunset and it is easily seen over 3 hours after sunset, longer if you have a clear western horizon.  When the sky is fully dark you can see Venus above the western horizon and bright Jupiter above the northern horizon. Venus is climbing the body of the Scorpion making a rather beautiful sight in the early evening. Venus is close to the globular cluster M19 on the 23rd, this is binocular or telescope only and the reativley dime M19 may be hard to make out with Bright Venus nearby. 

Mars is lost in the twilight.
   
Jupiter is rising before sunset and is readily visible when the sky is fully dark. Saturn and Jupiter form a line in the sky. Jupiter was at Opposition, when it was biggest and brightest as seen from Earth on August the 19th, and is still excellent in even small telescopes. 
 
Saturn is now rising well before sunset. Saturn was at opposition, when it is biggest and brightest as seen from Earth, on August 2nd. But it is still is an excellent time for telescopic observation.
