February 27, February 28 2009: Venus and crescent Moon extremely close after sunset

Friday, February 27, 2009

Just a reminder that this will be the last opportunity to see Venus and the Moon right next to each other in the evening for quite some time, as right now the Moon is below Venus and tomorrow (or today depending on where you live in the world) it'll pass by and above and soon be farther up in the sky away from Venus. Now Venus is beginning to sink down so by next month it'll be close to the Sun and out of view, so after that the Moon and Venus will only be next to each other in the morning later on, and if you're not a morning person either you know how tough that is to wake up to see.
