A Line in the Sky, Venus, Jupiter and the Crescent Moon (21 June 2015)
This evening and tonight were marvelously clear (okay, there was some thing cloud, but it generally kept out of the way. I the early afternoon I could see Venus easily with the unaided eye (in the daylight, around 3 pm). But even in binoculars I could not pick up Jupiter until just on sunset.
But after sunste the trio of Venus, Jupiter and the Moon were amazing. As the coulours drained fro the sky the trio became brighter, and the star Regulus joined the lineup. Bright enough even to pick up through my kitchen window.
Tomorrow night the line is longer, but still beautiful.
