Venus, Jupiter and Moon create Smiley Face (20081201-194526)

Hong Kong: 1 Dec, 2008 - Look up and smile tonight. Venus, Jupiter and the moon will smile back. :)

 

The two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter, close together this evening sky, forming a spectacular double.

 

The two are closest together with Venus lying about 2 degrees to the South (left) of Jupiter. On the same night the Crescent Moon will appear just beneath them, forming a 'Smiley Face'.
