best naked eye spectacle of the year

for any of you science geeks (like me), or those of you that are endlessly amazed by the cosmos...hopefully you haven't missed the "best naked eye spectacle of the year". the last week, the planets Venus and Jupiter have gotten really close to each other and last night were perfectly picturesque with the crescent moon. pretty impressive! this is kind of what it's looked like the past couple of days:

Sky and Telescope
seriously, run outside and check it out...

cool! Thanks, we've been wondering which planets those are. Never took the time to check it out. Pretty sad huh? Used to have a telescope and will probably get another as we all love star gazing. Science was and still is my favorite subject.

We were happy we got to see this a few times this weekend. We saw it in Buhl, and then we saw it again last night. Great stuff. I love astronomical wonders like this.
