Gorgeous Western Sky at Dusk: Crescent Moon, Venus, Jupiter

Boulder Colorado – Feb 23, 2012 – 6:29 pm Standard Mountain Time – looking West.

Wow, the evening sky is beautiful tonite: the crescent moon (“points upward”), with Venus and Jupiter in a pretty alignment in the West.

By the way, it will be this pretty for the weeks to come, and those two planets (Venus and Jupiter) will be getting closer together, to be closest on March 13.  Photo taken, with annotations added, just a moment ago:
