Get out just after sunset tonight (Feb 23rd) to see a slim crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter all in a nice line. Tomorrow night the Moon will be right next to Venus… and then on Saturday night it will be right beside Jupiter. Nice!!
If you have a clear view of the western horizon on Wednesday night at sunset you are in for a rare treat.
You may be able to observe the planet Mercury very close to the slim crescent moon.
