Re: Venus and Jupiter

I'd been looking at the star maps just five minutes before reading this topic to find out what they were.

Re: Venus and Jupiter

And, if you look to the east, just below Leo, Mars is rising.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Venus and Jupiter

That will be Venus. Jupiter is the planet further left and higher as in Pierré's first photo.
Google Sky Map for Android phones is really good for identifying planets, stars and constellations.
Just hold up the phone in the area of sky you are interested in and it shows the positions of and identifies celestial bodies.
