Tonight, we all went in the backyard and observed Venus (top) in the closest conjunction to Jupiter (bottom) that we'll see for years, combined with the crescent moon in between.
Last night, was also a fairly rare occurrence, as we all easily spotted four planets in the sky at the same time. Venus and Jupiter were the same as above but with no moon. Mars was close to being overhead and was easy to pick out because of its brightness and orange color. Saturn was low on the horizon and near Spica the brightest star of the Virgo constellation. Though equally bright, the boys could easily distinguish between Jupiter and Spica...planets don't twinkle and Spica was twinkling away.Posted by Don |
