Tonight's Sky for June 20: Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon at Dusk

Tonight just after dusk, the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th brightest objects in the sky, respectively, will all be within 10 degrees of each other. To simulate the angular gap, just hold your clenched fist out at arm's length. While not the closest of conjunctions possible, this still makes for a pretty neat, easy to see grouping. Also of note, notice how Venus and Jupiter are getting ever closer . . .
