Get yourself out this evening about an hour before sunset and look to the southwest horizon for a wonderful conjunction of Venus, Jupiter and a new crescent Moon. We spotted an early version of this (before the moon was in position) and thought they were a couple of airplanes, they were so bright.

Tomorrow the moon will be out of position, but Jupiter and Venus will be even closer, setting about a minute apart.
