Solar system cluster.
Over the next few nights, look west after sunset. You'll see Jupiter and Venus closing in on each other, and on Dec. 1, the moon will join up for a nice gathering of solar system objects. If we are lucky, maybe we can see this here in Seattle, but I don't get my hopes up. We'll just have to look at other people's photos of this astronomical clumping of objects. Darn clouds....
