Early evening is the time to head out to see the planetary conjunction. It is also the time to start feeding on insects, especially if you are a bat. We have seen a lot of them these evenings while looking at the conjunction. Tonight I actually grabbed some pics of the bats too.
Here's a wide shot of the three planets and a bat:

And a couple more, cropped from the full frame showing just a bat and Venus:
For you planet purists out there here's a shot of the conjunction without any bats in it:

The group of planets is pulling apart as Mercury ascends and Jupiter is sinking in the western sky. It should still be worth a look tomorrow night as May ends, but not for much longer.
