Tonight and tomorrow night the greatest show not on earth will light up the sky.
Are you watching?
Snowing here, got pictures?
Beautiful. Clouds cleared right at sunset. I took some photos.
Just went outside. It’s dusk right now. It’s lookin’ good. Tomorrow night will be better though when the moon is closer to Venus and Jupiter.
Cloudy and rainy here in Virginia.
They said it should still pretty neat for the next week or so.
Not yet, we are going up in the mountains tomorrow afternoon when the three are in full conjunction.
I will try to take pictures then.
It was beautiful last night - Jupiter and Venus are rapidly closing.
There are a few nice ones on spaceweather.com
Tomorrow you will be able to cover all three with your thumb - at arms length.
Unfortunately, there’s been snow and sleet and rain and apparently even hail all coming down in various mixtures for the better part of the day today in the area where I live. No chance of seeing anything in the sky tonight =’(
The moon is visible, the sun is going down and both the Power and the Grace should be shining soon.
Yeah. Last night, both Jupiter and Venus were very bright. It is cold and clear right now so we are getting a good show here in northern Arizona.
Venus has just appeared - She is at high noon with the moon at 4:00.
At an almost perfect 45 degrees.
real pictures... not cartoons.
(several of which used on “The Sky Today”)
I can’t help but look on this trine as a good omen.
It was so stunning tonight.
My daughter spotted them the other night, but with the crescent moon, it is beautiful.
However with the Mumbai tragedy, it looks too close to an Islamic flag to be enjoyed thoroughly. I had to look at it through my kids’ eyes who don’t know such things and just appreciate the sight.
There is a strong chance of the dark part of the moon being partially lit with earthlight tomorrow.
yup 52% elected the ‘crescent moon’.
