There is plenty to see in the western sky tonight after sunset.
Sunset tonight is 7:28. If you look toward the west at 8 as the twilight is darkening, you will find ever brilliant Venus nine degrees above the horizon.
The spectacular grouping of Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter in the evening sky after sunset will continue to delight us.
If you wait a couple of hours after sunset for the sky to darken and the moon to rise, you will be rewarded with beautiful views in the eastern sky around 8:30 p.m.
The sun sets tonight at 5:47. If you look toward the southwest from 6 to 7, you will see the 4-day-old moon forming a right angle triangle with Mars and Antares, the brightest star in Scorpius the Scorpion.
