The dance of Venus

I'm not much of an astrologer but I do love star gazing and I've always been keen to witness astrological events. The last few months Venus and Jupiter have been getting closer together with the finale around the 12th of March. Last week both planets alined with the moon and from our humble earth the serene view was stunning! With smart phones in every household why not download Googles Sky map for a little basic info on the constellations. Kids and adults alike can enjoy learning about the stars :)

If that is a bit too much effort just take a look out the window, they are best viewed in the evening not long after sunset, 2 distinctly bright "stars" the lowest and brightest one is Venus the higher (atm) is Jupiter. For more information check out Space.com :)
