Take a look at the sky this evening.

Shortly after sunset this evening, those of you afforded with clear skies (the forecast for the New York area is favorable) can see a conjunction of the moon, Jupiter and Venus in the western sky (see here). Viewers in Europe will be treated to an occultation of Venus, i.e. the moon will pass in front of the brightest planet.

  1. Up here in the mountains of Montana, (yikes, sounds redundant, yeah?)

    Anyhow...cloudy tonight with a slim possibility of snow.

    This is the time of year when we're most likely to see the northern lights...so cloudy skies at night kinda bum me out.
