Venus and Mars, February 5, 2015


DSC02348

A bitterly cold evening settles in as Venus and Mars shine from the southwestern sky this evening at 5:50 p.m. CST, as seen from the Chicago area.  Venus is rapidly appearing in the evening sky and Mars heading behind the sun.  Tonight the pair is separated by about 7.5 degrees.  Later this month they appear close together in the southwestern sky.
