    OT- This weekend Rare celestial show..Jupiter,Venus and Mercury grouped together

    This should be a great night sky viewing weekend, should be best on sunday right after sunset (tightest grouping), that would make a great photo for the Astrophotographers.


    Go stargazing this weekend, see three planets in night sky

    But the link states dates in August...August of 2010...don't mean to poop on anybodies parade...

    EDIT: I saw that this same thing is happening this week, even though the article was dated for a few years ago.

    All 3 planets are visible right now (8:25 ) in the NW sky, suppose to be visible until 10 pm. Suppose to be even closer together tomorrow night.

    If I wasn't such an a hole, I'd have copied this link and pasted it on my previous comment. Unfortunately, I didn't have the foresight to do it, so thank you.

    Your pictures never disappoint, and sorry for the name typo. That is quite the teaser. Can't wait to see more.

    I was on Powell over the weekend and saw that group of planets at sunset. I was curious about them so thanks for clearing it up for me.
