Be on the Lookout: Moon & Planets Align Tonight

Venus set to star in night sky spectacle

In what Astronomy Ireland are calling "one of the most awesome sights visible to the naked eye for the whole year", the planet Venus will be extremely close to the moon tonight, creating a spectacle for stargazers.

"Everyone in Ireland can plainly see this sight with the naked eye", says David Moore, Editor of Astronomy Ireland.

Derek Keif, an astronomer at the HR MacMillian Space Centre told potential planet gazers that Venus will be a glowing object that has a red and yellow tinge to it. Venus will shine slightly brighter than Mars, as it is closer to earth right now and has a reflective atmosphere that redirects light from the sun. "We can not emphasise enough how spectacular this sight will be tonight!"

You can also arrange to see the alignment on Wednesday, as a special watch is planned for tomorrow evening to view the Moon, Venus, and Mars up close through telescopes that can show almost a million times more detail than the human eye can see.

The natural satellite will be lying above-left of two planets, viz. Mars and Venus, on the 1st of February and hide numerous stars in the Hyades cluster in the Taurus constellation on the 5th of the next month.

Better dust off your telescopes!
