Photos from Last Night's Jupiter, Venus & Moon Viewing
This trio of planets were seen from around the world last night. And hopefully you saw it too because it won't be happening until 2052 (though, on New Year's Eve, Venus and the moon will be in view). This conjunction of planets have been seen in our skies since Thanksgiving night, but last night was when they appeared closest together.
Venus is around 100 million miles away and Jupiter at 550 million miles. Much closer to home is the moon at 252,000 miles. Background information on these events can be found here on our previous post.
