Until tonight I've been to crazy busy to even check out the nice conjunction of Jupiter, Venus and Mercury that is taking place in our evening skies. Have you seen it?
This evening's view from near Tucson, AZ began with a nice sunset. Wouldn't you agree?
When we look at this conjunction of planets, are we essentially looking inward and outward at the same time?
Yes, we are.
