Venus and Jupiter… March 12, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Astronomy, Science.
Cloudy today, but anyone who glances at the sky in the evening will know that Jupiter and Venus have been very close over the past while [close visually, not physically].
But, what of this? From today’s Irish Times.
“Both planets are very bright in the night sky. If you know where to look, you can even see Venus in the day. The two being so close together will be beautiful. Last night they looked like two beacons.
Seeing a planet during the day sounds remarkable. A couple of sites discuss this. This is good.
As is this column from Phil Plait of the excellent Bad Astronomy.
