Brilliant Venus shines in the western sky this evening.  It shines all other visible celestial objects this evening.  During late March is sets nearly three hours after sunset, appearing as a sparkling celestial gem in the western sky.   On Sunday, March 22, the moon appears about 3.5 degrees to the left  of Venus.  Look for the pair as the sky darkens.

Meanwhile, bright Jupiter shines high in the southeastern sky this evening near the star Regulus.  Tonight Jupiter is nearly 17 degrees to the upper right of Regulus.
