Last night’s moon with Venus
The moon is back in the evening sky, sweeping up past the bright planet Venus. And we do mean bright! Venus is at its brightest now for this evening apparition. It was a beautiful sight near the moon on December 4, 2013.
The moon and Venus will be even closer on the nights of December 5 or 6, closer for you on one of those nights, depending on your location on the globe.
