Tomorrow night, just after sunset (6:00pm), look to the southwest sky and you will see a wisp of a crescent moon cozying up to that hottie, Venus. If you are out trick or treating, stop for a minute and gaze in wonder. If the kids won’t let you stop or there are clouds, step out again on November 1 at sunset to see a similar scene. (Though by then Venus will have stepped a little further away from the Moon’s advances. Don’t worry though, Jupiter is chaperoning the whole time.)
Check out the NASA Halloween Sky Show Page for a beautiful photo and more info.
Trick or Treat!
And don’t forget to set your clocks back this Saturday night.
