Planetary Tango

The other day as I walked west out of our apartment, I saw two very bright stars very close together. It'd never seen it before, and I started to wonder if I'd always been wrong about where the North Star is.

Then, NPR informed me of the truth--Venus and Jupiter are very bright and very close together! It was neat to hear this story after I saw them, then I saw them again last night. They were even bright enough for me to capture them (barely) on my iPhone.

Although this picture from is much more striking.

Tonight take a look at the Western Sky--it's beautiful. (:
