The waxing crescent moon and Venus shine from the western sky this evening as seen from the Chicago area. The moon is nearly 2.75 days past its new phase and nearly 6 degrees to the upper left of Venus. Venus is beginning its appearance in the evening sky after its Epoch (close) Conjunction with Jupiter.
Later in the week, the moon passes Saturn and Mars
