We witnessed a triple conjunction of the moon, Venus and Jupiter best seen on Monday night December 1 and Tuesday December 2 here in Central Virginia. Photo courtesy of S. Duncan. It is most visible at dusk. You may still see it for the next few nights but they are gradually getting further apart.
Some people looked at it as a frown.
So if you were stargazing and wondering what those bright lights were near the crescent moon, there you have it!
