Three Bodies, No Problem

Moon sweeps by the planets Jupiter and Saturn.The next few nights the fat crescent moon drifts past Jupiter and Saturn as they appear from Planet Earth.

Leaving church this evening, the rain clouds had largely cleared, but it was a beautiful sight. The moon illuminated the edges of clouds and the giant planets hung nearby.

Keep an eye on those planets as the weeks continue. They will remain in the western sky and gradually draw closer to each other from our perspective. In reality, they are about 400 million miles apart.
