March has been a great month for viewing the waxing moon, Jupiter & Venus.
When Venus passes from the evening to the morning sky on June 6, 2012, it’ll swing directly in front of the sun. This is called a transit of Venus. Transits of Venus are rare, happening only two times in the 21st century, with none in the 20th century.
I think Mars can be found within Leo: will advise.
When I saw the Moon and Venus last night, I looked for Jupiter, which has been nearly aligned with Venus in the evening sky the last couple of weeks, but it seemed to have set. I'll step out a bit earlier tonight and see what there is to see.
I live in the country tonight! Unpolluted by too many lights! :D Spectacular!!
Directly below Venus towards the horizone the next brightest object is Jupiter. Now turn 180 degrees and you will see mars shining a soft red. Magic!
it IS Venus, fluffanutter :)
what that star or planet is right next to the moon right now? i thought that was venus also, but probably wrong. might be a geezer but ain't a gazer
the cloud cover here but I'll look for it.
Am going to go look for it :D
We got the Terrapin arrangement in the US last night and we should get an encore tonight.
