Venus and Jupiter will shine near The Moon

A slender crescent moon will be 15% illuminated and will appear in a very close proximity with Venus and Jupiter, the two brightest planet in our sky. This rare happening will most likely to appear on Monday evening, Dec 1.


Look to the southwest after sunset on Dec. 1 for a close conjunction between three bright solar system objects: the moon, Venus and Jupiter. If you have binoculars, you might even be able to fit all three of them in the field of view. Between now and then, you can see Jupiter and Venus getting closer together each evening. [via]
