Venus' adornment alongside the moon in the western sky this spring will soon be no longer. Wednesday will be the last time this year that the crescent moon and the yellow planet will pair up with each other this year. Look to the west at dusk tonight and Wednesday - if you look early enough with the naked eye or binoculars, you can make out Venus' crescent shape before it becomes too bright to discern. According to EarthSky.org , you should also be able to see earthshine, a faint glow on the dark portion of the moon, from light reflecting back from Earth toward the moon.

General Growth Properties has requested and received a continuation for its proposal before the county Planning Board to commercially develop the land adjacent to the Merriweather Post Pavilion. The continuation appeal, which the board granted Monday night, settles the confusion surrounding the development company's plans for the 51.7-acre crescent-shaped property - Columbia's largest chunk of developable land - next to Merriweather. After General Growth submitted the proposal to the board in October, it shared with the community in May a draft master plan to turn Columbia's Town Center into a vibrant, bustling downtown core.

It has been hard not to notice Venus and Jupiter twinkling in the western sky on all the pleasant, clear nights we've had. The view is about to get a little more spectacular. The crescent moon begins to peek out tonight, and over the next several nights will provide some drama in the sky alongside the bright planets. Look just above the western horizon at dusk to find them. Venus is the higher planet, and Jupiter the lower. If you have a decent backyard telescope, you should even be able to see Jupiter's four largest moons orbiting the gaseous giant.

A developer is to break ground Tuesday on an apartment complex in downtown Towson that Baltimore County officials hope will demonstrate to other builders that suburbanites are interested in the urban idea of living close to work, shops and entertainment. Residents of the $20 million, 264-unit Dulaney Crescent apartment building will be able to walk to the Super Fresh without crossing a major street. They'll be closer to the Hecht's in Towson Town mall than Hecht's is to Nordstrom. Based on the surrounding traffic patterns, it will be more trouble to drive to the barber shop and dry cleaners than to walk.

LONDON -- Authorities have begun investigating whether money raised to help victims of the October 2005 earthquake that devastated northern Pakistan ended up in the hands of those accused of plotting to bomb trans-Atlantic jetliners headed for the United States. Bank accounts belonging to a British-based charity, Crescent Relief, were frozen yesterday by Britain's Charity Commission, which opened a formal inquiry into what happened to the money collected to aid the families of the estimated 79,000 Pakistanis killed in the quake.

Heads up! If the forecast holds, the next three nights offer stargazers a tour of the western sky, guided by a slender crescent moon. Look west 45 minutes after sunset. Three days past "new," the moon stands tonight just to the right of brilliant Venus. Look again tomorrow and the moon will have passed left of Venus, approaching Saturn, the star-like object just to the moon's upper left. Tuesday, the fattening moon will crowd the bright star Regulus, 77 light years away in the constellation Leo.

More than two years after Hurricane Katrina, the sparkle is back on the tourist trail as the New Orleans' recovery continues. Much work remains and some popular spots have yet to return, while others may never do so. But tourist dollars are helping, according to the New Orleans Metropolitan Convention & Visitors Bureau. New Orleans has many fine restaurants -- Arnaud's, Broussard's, Luke, Muriel's, Bourbon House, GW Fins and the Court of Two Sisters among them. But budget-minded travelers may find two of them especially rewarding.

"Shiite Crescent" is Washington's new buzzword. Coined by Jordan's King Abdullah, the Shiite Crescent extends from Iran through Iraq to Syria and Lebanon and threatens the Middle East's status quo. With the Shiite community's rise to political prominence in Iraq, instability in Shiite-majority Bahrain, and Iran's invigorated confrontation with the West, the spotlight is shining on the rising power of this religious minority. The premise of the Shiite Crescent assumes that states sharing common sectarian ties tend to form alliances and choose cooperation partners.

Caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that were published in a Danish newspaper sparked strong protests and boycotts in Muslim countries this week, and in response, newspapers across Europe have reprinted the cartoons as an affirmation of freedom of the press - and that has led to a storm of outrage spreading from Indonesia to North Africa and including threats of violence against Europeans in Gaza. Just what the world needs: a holy war over religious slights. The editorial judgment of those who published the cartoons in the Jyllands-Posten may be questionable, but freedom of the press is not reserved for unquestionable editors.
