The Moon and Venus


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: moon; transitofvenus; venus; venusintransit
Well, the world may be going to hell in a hand basket but the heavens are giving us a fantastic display tonight with the crescent Moon, Venus,the Pleiades and Jupiter in the western sky.

If your area has clear skies to the west you can see this display...binoculars or a telescope or with the naked eye.

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 . . .

Is the moon in the second house and does Jupiter align with Mars?

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.

Right between Vermont and Maine... :-)

The GOP-controlled State Legislature just voted to leave the gay marriage law intact, so 'New Sodom' it is...

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.

Now I have that old hippie song in my head...Age Of Aquarius.

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 - - -
