Tonight's Sky for February 22: Venus and Mars Extremely Close

This is the view, sans Moon.

Tonight and tomorrow night, Mars and Venus, fourth and second planets from the Sun, will be within a degree of each other. To see the show, go out just after sunset and scan the West-Southwest sky along the horizon with binoculars. The brighter 'star' is Venus and the dimmer is Mars. If you're clouded out, don't worry, the planets will remain close the next few nights.
