My Sweetie and I sat last evening and enjoyed this
The two brightest celestial bodies after the sun – the waxing crescent moon and the planet Venus – pair up together this New Year’s Eve. You’ll see them in your southwest sky at dusk and early evening. The attractive evening couple will set about 4 hours after sunset.
Thursday night we hope to see; the moon – which is now a waxing crescent – shines to the upper left of Venus. To the lower right of the moon and Venus, you might be able to catch the planets Jupiter and Mercury near the horizon some 45 to 60 minutes after sunset.
