O heavenly bodies!
This week the moon and two of the planets aligned. The moon, Jupiter and Venus met in a rare conjuction.
The sky was clear here in Eldorado the night of December 1st, and we got a stunning view of the alignment in the southern sky.
The next time the three will be as close and visible as this week will be Nov. 18, 2052, according to Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium.
