Weekend Sky Show

This is a great weekend to watch the sun go down.  Venus, Jupiter and the slender crescent Moon are lining up in the western sky, forming a bright triangle in the evening twilight.  These three objects are so bright, they shine through thin clouds and even city lights. 

If you miss the arrangement tonight, try Sunday. If possible, look before the sunset sky fades completely black. Venus, Jupiter and the Moon surrounded by twilight blue is an especially beautiful sight.
