Venus Jupiter Moon triple Conjunction

December 4, 2008

so yesterday i stayed for clubs and i walk outside with my friends and we saw a crescent moon with two bright stars. I took very little notice of it because i was arguing that a star can’t be that bright so it had to be a plane. But today i find out it wasn’t a star or a plane, but jupiter and venus all lined up in a conjunction with the moon (which was crescent) to make a happy or sad face depending on which side of the world you’re on! I saw the frowny face. read more here because i can’t explain well, i think the next conjunction is next year? or 2010-11 something like that. but the one saw happened on dec

note: the brighter one is venus
