There’s a conjunction of the moon and the planet Venus this evening, but it’s not a particularly close one, but they’ll look pretty together over in the western sky at sunset. You’ll need a clear view down to the western horizon, with no trees, buildings or clouds blocking your view. The moon will appear then as a very slender crescent, almost a sliver. To the south of it you should see a very bright star appear, and this is the planet Venus, which has graced our evening skies for several months, but is now headed to a position between us and the sun where in the coming days it will be lost to sight. As twilight comes on, you’ll find another planet above Venus and the moon, and that’s Jupiter, bright, but not as bright as Venus. Tomorrow night Venus will appear in about the same place, but the moon will be a little higher in the sky, and its crescent shape will be a little bit thicker. You’ll find it beside Jupiter in the constellation Libra the Scales.
