The sky is expected to be cloudy and rainy in the Chicago area this evening. This simulated view of Venus and Jupiter is for 7:45 p.m. CDT in the Chicago area. For other locations in mid-latitudes in the northern hemisphere, look west at about one hour after sunset for these two bright planets. Monday, the planets will be about 3 degrees apart, about 6 full moon diameters. Although they appear close together on our sky, they are millions of miles apart in the solar system.
