    A lot will be happening this year including a total eclipse of the sun in August ( very rare) but right now for anyone lucky enough to have a clear sky, the moon, venus and mars will be playing closely together at sunset for the next few nights

  2. isn t that Venus?

    It got my attention last week, Mars is to the left of the moon I think.
