Look to the West

Don't forget the meeting of Jupiter and Venus. Look due west 30 minutes after sundown to see these bright planets converge. They'll come closest to one another Thursday, Sept. 1, when they'll be about 1.2 degrees apart, just more than twice the width of a full moon or about the width of your pinkie finger when held at arm's length.
