Astronomy Tonight: Moon, Venus & Jupiter Trio

Look outside about half an hour to an hour after sunset. The crescent moon will be very low in the southwest. Just to its lower right, you'll see two bright planets, Venus and Jupiter. Venus is the brighter of the pair. The two are separated by only 2°. That's about the width of your index finger held at arm's length.
