While the bright planets Venus and Jupiter are beginning to separate, they are still lovely in the western sky and are still only separated by less than five degrees this weekend.

With even a small telescope to may see up to four of Jupiter’s moons that look like tiny little stars either side.

Enjoy the sight!
