Look to the Sky on Dec 1

. Saturday, November 29

Look to the sky just after sunset and turn toward southwest on Monday, Dec. 1. You'll see a crescent moon and Jupiter and Venus right close by. The sliver of moon will also include a tracing the whole moon as it will be Earthlit. Venus has been particularly bright in the early night sky lately and will continue its bright visibility until January. In the past, when Venus was so bright, people called in UFO sightings and even fighter pilots have shot at it in fear of an alien invasion. Check it out and let me know what you see.

I sure hope you'll be taking photos of this alignment! I love the photos you have on Black Holes and Astrostuff.

Interesting but I see nothing.

Sunset came at a bad time for me yesterday, so I missed it. But, I did see things coming together Sunday night, and it looked pretty cool.
