Have you been watching the beautiful light display that Jupiter and Venus have been putting on in the western sky just after sunset? For the past month they have been the two luminaries that have graced the eveing sky with their magnificent beacons, Venus the brighter and lower of the two. Tonight, March 13, they reach their closest approach to one another. After this they continue their separate ways as Jupiter sinks into the west as it approaches conjunction with the sun, while Venus continues its easterly trajectory toward greatest eastern elongation on April 22. Watch them tonight and throughout the next month as they continue to put on their show.
