Sky Show Tonight: A Close Encounter Between Venus and the Moon
Sky Show Tonight: A Close Encounter Between Venus and the Moon
29 Nov 2000

The recent spate of geomagnetic disturbances produced auroras mainly at high latitudes. Middle- and low-latitude observers didn't see much in the way of Northern Lights. But tonight (Nov.29) there's a sky show that anyone can enjoy: a dazzling close encounter between Venus and the crescent Moon.

Visit for details about that and to view a gallery of pictures captured during this week's geomagnetic storms.
