Venus and Jupiter This Evening, May 23, 2013


No Photos This Evening as I was without a camera.

Clear skies prevailed this evening from the Chicago area.  Brilliant Venus and bright Jupiter were visible low in the western sky at 8:45 p.m.  Venus was near the horizon and Jupiter only 5 degrees to the upper left of Venus.

For more about the grouping of Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, see our monthly skywatching posting.
