Moon, Jupiter and Venus in conjunction

Right now, looking out of my office window, there is a gorgeous arrangement of the moon, Venus, and Jupiter in the twilight sky. If you have clear skies early tonight, go take a look to the west. The moon is a thin crescent, and Venus and Jupiter are the two brightest "stars" near the moon (Venus is the brighter one).

If you don't have clear skies tonight, Venus and Jupiter will still be close to each other for the next couple of days, but the moon is moving further eastward along her path.
