This spring, the two brightest planets will put on quite a show. Look for Venus and Jupiter in the western sky at dusk and beyond into the early evening. Venus, the brighter of the two, will be closer to the horizon, and Jupiter will be above and slightly south of Venus.
You can’t miss them. They outshine all the stars in the night sky. Look for their steady light–like airplanes that don’t move. As the weeks progress, Venus will move closer and closer to Jupiter. You can mark the passage of days by looking at how far apart they are from one another. I’ll have more to say about these two planets as the summer approaches.
