Off to the right of the crescent moon is a very bright Venus. To the left about the same distance is Saturn, not as bright. A binoculars will make it better.
Just wanted to pass it along in case you wanted to take the significant other outside or the rugrats for that matter. :thumbsup:

Dusk is a good time for viewing (now)

Will give it a try later this evening (we're a few hours behind you) - thanks so much for letting us know, boopme! :thumbsup:
Never let your computer realize you are in a hurry or just typing the last few words of a vital document.

While outer events might make one happy or sad, happiness itself is entirely internal, and at all times completely within one's power.

Last month on the 19th the moon was aligned on top of Venus to within 1 degree, a picture being worth a thousand words check this out.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

It's only 7:00 here in Ca., but will enjoy sitting out on the deck watching the night sky later.

The picture in the link doesn't do justice to what it looked like where I live. I'm in a rural area about 3,000 feet elevation which is great for sky watching, there were no clouds here as there are shown in the picture, it was awesome.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I did enjoy the view last night, I had a bonus though, while I was out I happened to look to the north and saw a bright fast moving object that I thought was plane at first, but it was too large...it was the space station! :thumbsup:

Man that must have been incredible !!
I've seen a launch from Kennedy Space Center once that was a cool site. I even saw the Shuttle being piggybacked on a 747, flying down he Hudson River. But the spacestation is the best

I got busy and missed it last night, the local news televised photos that showed the space station and Atlantis separated. I won't miss it tonight, this could be the last good shot for a while.

I did get to see it tonight, it was much lower on the horizon and appeared as two separate blips that would appear and disappear going across the sky. Tomorrow night it will be too far over the horizon to be seen from here.

Hey I found a link that lets you enter ...Country ,state and city for times of the ISS (Space Station) flyover.
It will be viewable again here Sun 9:08 pm.
Look up your town ,or the closest town TURI and make a note. Summer nite skies are usually the best,but by far not the only.
