Tonight's Sky for August 19: Jupiter and Venus Still Close


More technical problems fixed . . . and Jupiter and Venus have already made their closest pass in the predawn sky at about only a fifth of a degree of angular separation. However, come the morning of the 19th (tomorrow), they will still be extremely close, as they will be in the next couple of days should tomorrow be cloudy. To see the pairing, just head out before sunrise and look East. Jupiter and Venus are the two brightest objects in the sky and are just about impossible to miss!
