Free Show

Glorious crescent moon, Venus, Mercury grouping in the sky tonight.  Right after sunset.  

As a bonus, Gordo sez the possibility of aurora borealis is high tonight, due to a giant solar promenance.  So turn off your TV and step outside.

Thanks for the information. I know I have been noticing Venus in the western sky at twilight, but I will look for that other large star too - Aldebaran. Thanks so much for this illustration. And thanks for you comment on my blog.

You're welcome, femme. I love the sound of the name Aldebaran, the way it flows off the tongue. It's fun to say.

It was beautiful.

Lovely pic, that. Thanks for posting it.

It was, Scarlett. That crescent moon/Venus combo as dusk is one of my favorite sights. Should be a monthly occurrence for awhile.

Love this sentence: So turn off your TV and step outside.
Have a beautiful time
