Venus and Jupiter (and the Pleiades) Tonight, April 4, 2012


The spacing between Venus and Jupiter, appearing just above the treetops, is rapidly increasing. Venus is just past the Pleaides in this image made at 8:40 p.m. CDT.  High clouds in the Chicago area make it difficult to see the star cluster.
