Venus and Jupiter This Morning, August 15, 2014


With a bright moon approaching last quarter high in the south, brilliant Morning Star Venus and bright Jupiter shine in the eastern sky this morning.  (Click the image to see it larger.)  This morning the pair is separated by about 3 degrees.  During the next three mornings watch Venus meet Jupiter.  On August 18, they are 1/3 degree apart!  That’s less than the apparent diameter of the moon!
