Planetary goodness

Look up. Way up.

Unless you are visually impaired or happen to live in a smogbound city like Los Angeles (where you could hover UFOs a half kilometer over the city and no one would ever see them) you have probably noticed the rather stunning conjunction of Jupiter and Venus over the past few nights. Tonight it gets even better - the moon will be popping up over the western horizon just after sunset, right below the Blazing Planets of Doom, creating a fetching arrangement of celestial bodies. Get yourself out there at 7:45 p.m. and gaze to the west. You wont be sorry.
