Venus, Jupiter and the Crescent Moon Conjunction 26th February 2012

Tonight, just after sunset, Venus, Jupiter and a thin crescent Moon will line up and form a close thin triangle in the evening sky.

See the below diagram for positions of  the crescent moon, Venus and Jupiter – They will be an awesome sight!
