The Moon and Venus
If your area has clear skies to the west you can see this display...binoculars or a telescope or with the naked eye.
Just saw it - great!
I was out and could see it just fine. It’s cold and very clear.
Now I’ve got to check outside to see if Mars is still visible further east. It has been, pretty much all month . . .
Crisp and cold in New Sodom (NH) makes a beautiful night sky at the moment...
Mars is getting to be overhead now.
Is the moon in the second house and does Jupiter align with Mars?
I have to ask, where is New Sodom near?
The juxtaposition of these celetrial bodies truly astounded me yesterday night. The qtr moon was like a saucer with Venus hanging right over it. Perfectly clear from Mid Town Atlanta. Super cool.
The GOP-controlled State Legislature just voted to leave the gay marriage law intact, so 'New Sodom' it is...
Naked eye - Venus and Moon nice and clear here in NE Texas!
I can see it from here while FReeping.
I’ve been watching these two planets for the last four days and saw tat the moon was going to get into the dance. I’m in SoCal, BTW, I vote conservative.
Beautiful, crisp clear sky here in Kentucky. I got home late and stared in awe at the sky. The magnificence of God’s creation!
Yep, it’s so beautiful that there are two threads in a row mentioning it. They are just glowing.
Even prettier in divide Colorado - we’re a little closer than most ;)
Sorry, could not resist. Still daylight here for a couple hours, got to amuse meself before cooking dinner...........
Now I have that old hippie song in my head...Age Of Aquarius.
Another reason to love freerepublic. Great view, thanks for the education.
Also in So Cal - Ventura County.
Lucky not to be overcast - - -
Spectacular sky show.
A few weeks ago, while driving, I coudn’t figure out what was different about the sky towards the west - 2 bright stars almost in alignment - - - and not that high.
It was like a movie where something odd appears in the sky, with a message for earth people - - - !
Remember the movie ‘2010???’
Something (planet?) blew up, and then there were 2 of something in the sky. . . and it was a good thing.
Ditto here - your voting style - - -
