For the past two nights, Venus, The Moon and Jupiter have been appearing very close together in the night sky, appearing around sunset and making quite a spectacle of themselves. This evening (February 27th, 2012), they will continue with their triple-conjuction. Afterwards the natural drift of three objects with very different orbits will end this conjunction. In other words, the Moon goes away. Venus & Jupiter will continue to appear together just after sunset through much of March.
These stellar objects will appear in the West-Southwest sky just after sunset, with the Moon. These planets will be visible even in the most light-polluted of skies as long as you have a relatively unobstructed view to the West-Southwest. Take advantage!
