Venus and Jupiter converge over the next couple of weeks, and will be separated by only one half a degree on Feb. 1, they will both soon be joined by the moon.

Get your telescopes out...it is sure to be a beautiful morning sight! If anyone gets some good pictures, as I am no photographer, I would love it if you would share them here.

ENJOY!!

Besides, we'll all be out at the barby celebrating the fact that TU24 missed the chance for carving up any local fauna and flora. What a great way to enjoy the outdoors. It's a pity we have no clue when the next "evil rock" is due for a close encounter with Earth.

Yes, it will indeed be an "event" of some note to those interested in astronomy.

Thanks for reminding us.

My thoughts, exactly. That alone will make it an even more beautiful sight!
