Thanksgiving sky: Jupiter, Venus, and the moon TRIANGLE in HEAVEN
Thanksgiving sky: Jupiter, Venus, and the moon together


It's not just families that are getting together this Thanksgiving week. The three brightest objects in the night sky — Venus, Jupiter and a crescent moon — will crowd around each other for an unusual group shot.
Starting Thanksgiving evening, Jupiter and Venus will begin moving closer so that by Sunday and Monday, they will appear 2 degrees apart, which is about a finger width held out at arm's length, said Alan MacRobert, senior editor at Sky and Telescope magazine. Then on Monday night, they will be joined by a crescent moon right next to them, he said.
Look in the southwestern sky around twilight — no telescope or binoculars needed. The show will even be visible in cities if it's a clear night.
"It'll be a head-turner," MacRobert said. "This certainly is an unusual coincidence for the crescent moon to be right there in the days when they are going to be closest together."
The moon is the brightest, closest and smallest of the three and is 252,000 miles away. Venus, the second brightest, closest and smallest, is 94 million miles away. And big Jupiter is 540 million miles away.
The three celestial objects come together from time to time, but often they are too close to the sun or unite at a time when they aren't so visible. The next time the three will be as close and visible as this week will be Nov. 18, 2052, according to Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium.
But if you are willing to settle for two out of three — Venus and the crescent moon only — it will happen again on New Year's Eve, MacRobert said.

Re: Thanksgiving sky: Jupiter, Venus, and the moon TRIANGLE in HEAVEN
"The Three Brightest Night Time Objects Meet
In A Terrific Extraterrestrial Trio!"

Horkheimer: Greetings, greetings fellow star gazers. And if you want to start December right on Monday night December 1st the three brightest objects in the night time sky will meet and make a terrific trio that i guarantee will knock your socks off. Let me show you.

O.K., we've got our skies set up for Monday this week November 24th at dusk facing southwest where just above the horizon you will see the brightest planet of them all Earth sized 8,000 mile wide Venus, aptly named for the Roman goddess of love and beauty. And just up to Venus' left the second brightest planet appropriately named for the king of the Roman gods because coincidentally this happens to be the largest and king of the planets, 88,000 mile wide Jupiter, so huge we could line up eleven Venuses or Earths across its middle.

Now as astronomers say, they are, on the 24th, only 6 1/2 degrees apart. Which you can visualize more easily by remembering that one full Moon equals one half a degree. So if Venus and Jupiter are 6 1/2 degrees apart that means we could line up 13 full Moons between them on Monday. But they are moving rapidly toward each other and only 24 hours later on Tuesday the 25th they will be 6 degrees or 12 full Moons apart, on Wednesday the 26th, 5 degrees or 10 full Moons apart, on Thursday the 27th, 4 degrees or 8 full Moons apart, on Friday only 3 degrees or 6 full Moons apart. But then ta da! It really gets good because on Saturday November 29th, they'll be only 2 1/2 degrees apart, which means that only 5 full Moons could fit between them. And if you have a really clear flat horizon you just may be able to see an extremely thin 2 day old crescent Moon. Binoculars will help.

But the next two nights are the best because on November 30th the last day of this month an exquisite crescent Moon complete with earthshine, which will look like a grayish black full Moon nestled within the crescent, will be down to the right of Jupiter and Venus and they will be at their closest for this go round only 2 degrees apart which means only 4 full Moons could fit between them. But it gets even better as we open up the first day of the last month of 2008 because ta da! on Monday December 1st an even more beautiful crescent Moon complete with earthshine will be just beyond Jupiter and Venus which will still be at their closest and the three of them will form one of the most striking trios you will ever see in the night sky. I mean just think of it the three brightest objects we can see in the night sky, all together making a perfect triangle. It just doesn't get much better than this.

But although they look like they're close together it's only our perspective from our planet, which makes it so. In reality they are at vast distances from each other. Indeed on December 1st our 2,000 mile wide Moon will be only 250,000 miles away, whereas Venus will be 93 million miles beyond. Jupiter however will be a whopping 540 million miles! And believe me if you've got binoculars or a small telescope this will be the night to use them. Venus will look like a gibbous Moon plus you'll see four of Jupiter's Moons. So get thee out starting Monday of this week, watch every single night and on December 1st bask in the beauty of a terrific extraterrestrial trio. Keep looking up!

new moon this mornin. the sky is in the mood of justice now. the archer is in place, the arrow is drawn. venus watches that it may be true, the moon hopes and waits to become full. aries, the mars is furious at saturn, and waits in holy ambush. jupiter oversees this all.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT



(Newser) – Americans looking at the night sky this weekend will be able to see the three brightest celestial bodies come together for a Thanksgiving reunion, the AP reports. Jupiter and Venus will move closer and appear to be just a finger's width apart by Sunday. By Monday, the crescent moon will appear right next to them, forming a triangle of light not to be seen again until 2052.

Are you lost? I'm talking about the same thing the OP and yourself are, the cluster of Moon, Venus, and Jupiter.

I'm an American and I don't watch Miley Cyrus. Start there and then find your way out of your confusion.

Oh, call Americans what you want. I'd be more worried about your repulsive, judgmental spew.

It was spectacular as I watched it with my family last evening 8 kilometres east of Kampala from Kwata Zone Village, Komamboga Parish, Kawempe Division, Kampala, Uganda, East Africa.

The sky was clear and the line-up was awesome, lovely, breathtaking!

I was more impressed with the Thanksgiving sky than last night; in between, we had overcast skies.

I certainly noticed the alignment last night... it literally stopped me in my tracks and I stood transfixed for several minutes.
