The moon and Jupiter – the two brightest objects in our evening sky now – were close together as seen throughout the world last night (February 17, 2012). You couldn’t miss them, unless you had clouds. If that was the case, try again tonight (February 18). You’ll see the moon and planet still close. Jupiter will be the brightest object near the moon.
