If skies are clear tonight, look to the west after sunset as a very young crescent moon appears just to the left of the brilliant planet Venus. The moon will move a little bit farther east each night next week, standing just below bright Jupiter on Monday. Then watch Jupiter creep slowly closer to Venus all month, coming nearest on the evening of Dec. 1, in a spectacular triple conjunction with the crescent moon.
