SUNSET PLANETS: When the sun goes down tonight, step outside and look southwest. Venus and Saturn have gathered in a loose conjunction just above the rosy glow of sunset. Peter Lowenstein sends this picture from Mutare, Zimbabwe:

"I have been watching Venus and Saturn converge for the past few nights," he says. "Mutare is experiencing a heatwave with temperatures of up to 37 degrees centigrade. Smokey haze from bush fires deepens the natural red of the sunset. It is a beautiful view."

It's about to get even better. On Nov. 1st, a slender crescent Moon will emerge from the glare of the setting sun and move toward the two planets. On Nov. 2nd, Venus, Saturn, and the Moon will form a must-see triangle in the sunset sky. Don't miss it!

Last night the sky was SO clear. Stars were just everywhere! Hoping for a clear sky again tonight.
