For the second day in a row, Venus and the crescent Moon are shining together in the sunset sky. Look west at the end of the day for a beautiful view.
Jupiter can also be seen in the sunset sky at this time. Between December 2011 and the middle of March 2012 Jupiter and Venus will seem to draw closer together, as seen from earth, until by Mid March they will appear to be side by side in the night sky.
