Went out for a looksie but could not spot the moon, my guess is that you are in the southern hemisphere? I am in the northern hemisphere..

According to this site, it appears that at least one is Venus.

earthsky.org...

Not sure of the other, is it possible to snap a photo? (sorry missed that you couldn't submit a photo at the moment. When you can, I might be of further help.)

It's Jupiter and lower on the horizon is Venus, simples.

Too cloudy here to see anything, but Stellarium says that Venus is under (sort of) right now.
I don't know what the other would be.

Yep, Venus is close, Jupiter towards the SW as of yet.


On the night after Christmas, the heavens delivered a belated present--a conjunction of Venus and the crescent Moon.

Disagree. Jupiter and Venus are nearly at a 90 deg angle with earth. If Jupiter were 'below' the moon, same approximate location as Venus, then there would be a near full moon. Since thats not true, Jupiter must be far above the moon (high in the sky as the moon sets). That is all according to my observations of a JPL orbit diagram for today. Not sure, so ill check if the clouds ever clear.

Jupiter should be top left, Venus should be lower right (to the moon), disagree all you want, I am telling you a fact.

Load Stellarium, it is an easy program to run and will give you enough info to figure the stars and planets out. Also at space weather, google ,simple satellite tracker, it will answer most questions as to what is moving around in the evening skies as far as they go.

The crescent Moon was clearly visible here a little earlier, Venus should be in conjunction. on 26th it was seeable on the same horizontal plain to the right of the Moon, and perhaps something similar tonight. Jupiter is much higher and to the SE. Anything else very bright I don't know of.

Not everyone is in to astronomy, that is why they ask questions. Your post is not constructive, why did you even bother posting?

was not trying mislead lol its a simple and direct question. i wanted to know what was there, simple. lol what are you getting on about?


anyways back on topic...as i view it now theyre both moving towards the far right...now this time it seems the dot on the bottom of the moon is going far lower moving away from the moon. anyone else notices this? this is cool stuff to me lol ive gotta try that stellarium prog out....wonder if theres anything like it for android phones?

Ok, well half of you 'fact' is incorrect... and i have proof.
Almanac
According to the almanac for today, Venus is going to set at about 7pm, then the moon about an hour later. Jupiter wont set until after 2am. That's a huge difference. Jupiter just rose like 3 hrs ago, which means its still far in the eastern sky, while the moon and venus are about to set.

That is what I said, did you even read my post correctly? If Venus is lower right to the moon, then of course it will "set" before the moon, if Jupiter is upper left, then it is going to set AFTER the moon.
