Jupiter and the Moon, Close on Mothers Day, May 12 2013

This  Sunday Evening the thin crescent Moon and Jupiter will be close together above the western horizon, making a fine sight in the late twilight for Mothers day.

Start looking half an hour after sunset, if you have a flat, clear horizon you may see Venus just above it.

It was a lovely sight. The helpingest boy was with me as we moved a big ugly boat trailer after sunset. It's obvious he's my son when he asks "is that a star or a planet ?" And then showed my uncle where to look.
