Tonight's Sky for July 24: Moon Meets Venus


Want to see the planet Venus but don't know where to look? Well, you're in luck this morning as the waning crescent Moon will be parked right next to Venus. To see the show, simply go out in the predawn sky, look East and find the Moon and that bright “star” next to it. The Moon is the Moon, of course and that “star” is Venus, second planet from the Sun, closest planet to Earth, and third brightest object in the sky after the Sun and Moon. As an added bonus, Mercury will be below today's pairing.
