Mars, Venus & Crescent Moon 20th February 2015
The waxing crescent moon and the planet Venus – the brightest and second-brightest orbs of nighttime, respectively – will be the first two celestial bodies to pop out after sundown. Look westward, starting around 30 to 45 minutes after sunset. Then as dusk ebbs into darkness, watch for the planet Mars to join the brilliant twosome. If you have binoculars, aim them at Venus to spot Mars all the sooner in the darkening sky.
