Venus and the Moon, November 1.
Enjoying the sight of Venus in the Scorpion? It gets better, the Moon joins Venus in the next couple of days, On the evening of the 31st of November (Friday), the Moon will be in the head of the Scorpion below Venus, and on Saturday 1 November, the Moon and Venus will be one fingerwidth apart, forming a narrow triangle with the bright red star Antares. You should be able to see this from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm local times. Again with Jupiter up above Venus and the Moon this will be a very attractive sight.
