Get it Together: Moon, Venus, and Jupiter, at Sunset

I wasn’t going to post this because every time I point out something astronomical the dang clouds move in. But I see some blue sky right now. Tonight, just above the setting sun, the waxing crescent moon hangs with Venus (the bright one), and Jupiter. Sunset is 5:26 PM.

Click the photo to go to EarthSky and get the details. The moon will be marching up past those two planets over the next few days so don’t be bummed if one of these 30 mph clouds is blocking it all tonight.
