Venus and Jupiter

Animation of Jupiter and Venus
Venus and Jupiter seen setting on the western horizon 1 September 2005 CREDIT: Stuart
If you can be bothered to wait for it to download, you should notice that the image above is an animation. It shows the planets Jupiter and Venus (the lower of the two) as they appeared to set behind the trees at around 8.30 pm BST this evening (yesterday evening if you want to be pedantic). This was the view from  about 20 miles south of Manchester where there is much less light pollution. Pop over to the Bad Astronomy blog to see what it looked like from California, or to Astroblog for a view from down under.
