The Moon, Venus and Jupiter

While Jupiter and Venus are now drawing apart after their rendezvous a few days ago one more pretty dance will liven the evening sky. With the two only 10° apart a crescent Moon will slide between them. The 11% illuminated Moon will make a nice match for the two brilliant planets, creating a lovely trio in the evening sky.

Tomorrow night the Moon will have moved to the other side of Venus, still quite close at about 4° separation, creating another pretty view.
