If you’re lucky enough to have a view of the Western sky at sunset, no doubt over the past week you’ve been inspired by a most beautiful display. Venus and Jupiter–the two brightest planets–have been growing closer and closer. They will be at their closest on Tuesday night, when the Moon will be almost full. Make a wish! Venus and Jupiter are the gift givers of the zodiac. Both remain close through August, which means we can keep watching and wishing for awhile.
