Hey Space Placers!
We in the D.C. area are going to be clouded out starting tomorrow (Saturday) for a few days (possibility of snow on Sunday) SOOOO get outside tonight at sunset to check out the Venus and Jupiter show in the west. The solar system's two brightest planets are getting closer each night and to truly appreciate the upcoming finale in March, you need to start watching now.
NASA has a great guide to it all right here: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2012/17feb_winterplanets/.
I'll try and post a pic tomorrow and I will have an interesting story for you about this winter.
