This weekend they’ll be a spectacular conjunction between three planets: Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury. They’ll make a tight triangle in the low western evening twilight sky only about one degree in diameter. You need to have a treeless clear view of the western horizon because they’ll be just above the horizon. You can hold out your thumb at arm’s length and cover of three planets… How often can you do that?!
