Tonight just after sunset, the Moon, Mars, and Venus will be making a close pass low in the Western sky just after sunset. To see the shoe, just go out and look West after the Sun goes down. The Moon? That's impossible to miss. Moon found, look for two bright stars (binoculars recommended) very close to it. The brighter one is Venus and the dimmer Mercury. As close as the planets are tonight, they will b even closer the next few nights . . .
