Venus and Mars Conjunction
(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

In the evening twilight after sunset, we find Venus shining bright in the western sky. These days we find a red star very close to Venus, in fact this is not a star but red planet Mars. On 22nd of February these two planets come closest to each other, at just below half a degree. Our moon measures half a degree in the sky. If we continue observing these planets for few days more, we can see that Venus is moving up in the sky and Mars is getting closer to Sun. Hope you all get a chance to see this during the weekend.
