Has anyone seen Venus and Jupiter?

For the last few days I've noticed them. They are so clear, I can see them right now. It's mind-boggling to think they look like stars but they are actually planets.

I see them when I take the dogs out.

My oldest came in last night and said you could see all three, just as I was hitting the pillow. No discussion ensued.

Didn't realize that's what they were. I remember looking at the moon last night and thinking to myself "dem be some bright ass starts".

Yep. Been watching every night. Every night they're almost exactly west of where I live. A few days ago if you looked directly east you could also see Mars. But I haven't checked lately, as I live in the woods and I don't feel like driving less than a mile to get a better view lol.

Whenever I'm in Maui or out in the outskirts of LA away from the city I can see them very clearly. I also saw Mars up close through a crazy telescope when I was at a family friend's vacation home in Wyoming a while ago, which was amazing.

Yeah I've noticed this for the past few days, so cool.

This is always neat to watch, how other planets would look if they were the same distance away as the moon.

I don't recall a time where I've seen both of them so bright either. Usually, the light pollution washes out Venus here in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. Not this year though. It was also pretty slick to see both visible in Paris last week.

It is nice, but I got it from National Geographic News, kids page, the smiling Moon! I don't actually know if it's from the current conjunction...
