Skies should be clear enough this evening for a good view of a striking celestial event in the western sky, one we haven't see for a while. After sunset, before skies grow dark, look low in the southwest for a close conjunction of a very slender crescent moon and the planet Venus. They'll be less than a degree apart - the width of your pinky held at arm's length. This young moon marks the first day of the Muslim New Year 1428.
