A great opportunity for planet-gazing

Speaking of art and nature, I’d like to recommend getting outside and savoring the beauty of the night sky a little bit after sunset, because for a while you’ll be able to see the conjunction of Venus and Mercury.

Yes, those are our planetary neighbors… hold your hand up at arm’s length and they’re just about three fingers apart. Trust me, it’s a whole different experience seeing this with your own eyes. Which you can, but binoculars might help if you’re in an area that suffers from light pollution.

Enjoy contemplating the universe!
