Venus, Jupiter and the moon, May 21, 2015


Brilliant Venus is joined by the crescent moon this evening in the western sky.  Bright Jupiter appears to the upper left of Venus.  Tonight the pair is separated by about 30 degrees.  The planets appear very close together at the end of June.  Castor and Pollux, the Gemini Twins, appear above the Venus-moon pairing.  Procyon appears to the left of the moon.
