Stuttgart April 2-10 Gregorian dates AD 1459:
West North West- sunset Venus and Mercury were 21 degrees apart on April 
2, closing to 15 degrees by April 10; Sun 6 degrees south of Venus so 
probably drowned out Venus?

South South East April 2-10: Jupiter and  Mars are 36 degrees apart, moving 
to 34 degrees by April 10; Uranus lies between them.
