Happy skies are coming!

One month after Halloween, Venus, the Moon, and Jupiter will converge on a tiny patch of sky no bigger than the end of your thumb held at arm's length.  December 1st is the best night to look, in the early evening, in the west. They should together look like a smiley face, as the moon will be a crescent.
