Venus and Jupiter

Near Perfect Lining of the Planets

Monday evening's clear skies made for a wonderful "once-in-a-blue-moon" opportunity for Venus and Jupiter to line up nearly perfect. Taken from my driveway on Sussex Drive NE in Cedar Rapids around 8:45pm.

Thanks for the pic. I was out in my back yard and I saw these two gems and knew they were planets. I guessed the bright one was Jupiter, but didn't know what the other one was.
