Night Sky Delight Underway
The planets Venus and Jupiter are in conjunction along with a slice of Moon in the post-dusk night sky for the Thanksgiving Holiday, notes the Norwich Bulletin. On Saturday night, Nov. 29, the planets will appear the closest, with Jupiter only 2.4 degrees above Venus. A low view of the southwest of horizon is essential with the Moon joining the picture boldly on Monday evening December 1st. NASA provides more viewing insight. Videos 1*****, and 2 and 3 provide deeper explanation. Enjoy the view!
