Sunset sky show tonight

From… for my fellow astronomy buffs.

Space Weather News for August 31, 2005

Reminder: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look west. Do you see a pair of lights beaming through the rosy glow of sunset? That would be Venus and Jupiter: the two bright planets are converging for a beautiful close encounter. They'll be side-by-side for the next few days.

Visit for sky maps and pictures from around the world–including the South Pole where the sun is just coming up after a long dark winter, but the sky is still dark enough to see Venus and Jupiter.
