It’s a rare occasion that the planets line up, and tonight, Venus, Jupiter and Mercury will.

To see them: 30 minutes after sunset, face west, look first for Venus, as it’ll be the brigthest of the 3. It will last for about 45 minutes.
The next alignment won’t happen until October 2015.
Last year on this day I blogged about the Transit of Venus, which won’t happen again till after you and I are long dead.
For all my love of logic, I’m pretty into the planets. My thinking is that the Egyptians dedicated their entire country to constructing buildings to track such things. Think we’re smarter than them? We’re not.
Did you know the planets lined up with the Pyramids of Giza on December 1 2012?
