Venus and Jupiter Dance in the March Skies

Portrait of me with Venus and Jupiter over my shoulder.
I hope everyone has been enjoying this month's show. March 13, 2012, was an unseasonably warm night perfect for stargazing. The night's show can be seen over the next several nights during the early evenings as you look toward the western sky. Venus (brighter to the right) and Jupiter (slightly lower to the left) have not appeared this close together in 24 years.

Here is a link to a nice article on the conjunction at Space.com.
