Attached is a Venus-Jupiter-Moon conjunction picture that
took place last month. Jupiter is the faintest of the three at upper left in
the picture. Although the picture can’t replace the real thing it will give you
an Idea of what the conjunction looked like.
If you didn’t have a chance to see that conjunction, then
look to the west after sunset over the next few nights. Two bright planets,
Venus and Jupiter, are within a few finger widths of each other. In reality the two planets about 500 million miles apart, but from Earth they appear close in the sky.
On March 25th and 26th the crescent Moon joins the gathering in a formation similar to the attached picture. So check out Venus and Jupiter soon and mark your calendars for the upcoming Venus, Jupiter, and Moon conjunction.
