Cresent Moon with Two Stars/Planets
Silhouette with Moon and Stars
Twilight last night and again tonight should be beautiful. Look to your Southwest. There a waxing crescent moon will smile below the shining lights of Jupiter (the brightest) and Venus. Take a few minutes and breathe the cool air and feel the quiet of the evening settle over our part of the planet.
Earth & Sky, my favorite source for nighttime viewing events, talks about these two planets’ conjunction and explains waxing and waning moons if you need to bone up on your astrological vocabulary.
