Hong Kong: 1 Dec, 2008 - Look up and smile tonight. Venus, Jupiter and the moon will smile back. :)

The two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, close together this evening sky, forming a spectacular double.

The two are closest together with Venus lying about 2 degrees to the South (left) of Jupiter. On the same night the Crescent Moon will appear just beneath them, forming a 'Smiley Face'.

Great shots! And thanks, On the way home from work a day or two ago I saw two very bright "stars" and knew it had to be some sort of planet. Not to educated on the solar system, so now I know I was right, planets. Thanks for the shots and the education.
