Astronomy: December 2008 Archives

Step Out Tonight, Free Space

"What are you doing this evening, right around sunset? Have a minute to step outside? Should be more than worth your time. Face south and look up. No matter where you live, no matter how bright your cities' lights. As long as it's not cloudy, you will see a beautiful and inspiring sight: two bright planets and the crescent moon. That'd be Venus and Jupiter, for those of you who like to name names."

"Alan Dyer and Irene Klotz have astutely pointed out that Venus and Jupiter are set to glorify the night sky around sunset tonight (Monday, December 1st)."
