SUNSET SKY SHOW, AGAIN: A month ago, Venus, Jupiter and the crescent Moon aligned beautifully for evening sky watchers around the world. Tonight it's happening again. On March 25th and 26th, the trio will appear side by side in the western sky at sunset.

It has captured hearts and minds for centuries, with fantasists and even respected astronomers alike hypothesising until as recently as the 1960s that it was a world teaming with exotic life beneath its impenetrable white clouds.
