The Sky Has A Sense of Humor
Written by Bwog Staff
God knows its finals season. This afternoon from around 2 PM to 6 PM, the juxtaposition of the moon, Venus and Jupiter will form a frowny face in the south-south-western sky.
Bwogger and astronomy-tipster Hans Hyttinen believes that optimal viewing time will be after the sun sets at 4:20 PM. Fiddle around with the stars and planets to get a better sense of this planetary optical illusion here, and read about yesterday’s heavenly smiley face, which proved rather feeble due to misalignment and weather problems.
Also: We want your sky portraiture! If you get a good shot of the sad face this afternoon, send it to [email protected].
