Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon hang together in a darkling spring sky.

When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars...
- “The Age of Aquarius,” from the Broadway musical Hair

I don’t subscribe to all of that constellational bullshit... but there are some things that, when seen in the evening sky, are worthy of a second glance. The current conjunction of Venus, Jupiter, and the Moon fit that description.

Jupiter and the waxing crescent Moon. The unlit part of the Moon is visible thanks to the reflection of light from the Earth.

Your pictures look awesome!

I have yet to get a chance to catch this - apparently they can be viewable on my end too. I have to try, not much time left! Ggggrrrrrr!

We always called a moon like that "God's thumbnail".
