I've been insanely busy of late (more on that likely in a future blog post), but not so busy as to prevent me from enjoying the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus. Here they are as seen tonight, poised above a palm tree located in San Marcos, California (my new home). Venus is the brighter of the two.
The planets will be even closer tomorrow evening (June 30). It is a special sight to see the two brightest planets so close together. Go out and take a look.
