20090114 - Up in the sky
This morning the Moon descended in the western horizon. Big and bright on a blue morning sky.
Today Venus reached greatest elongation at 47° east of the Sun. This is the bright object many see in the NYC sky at twilight and well into the evening, setting a few minutes earlier than 9pm EST. Look south and southeast, it is the brightest light in teh sky and could be mistaken for a helicopter - or, for some maybe a UFO.
