Earlier this week, NASA posted a notice on its Science@NASA webpages concerning the apparition in the sky this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. So, as you enjoy the holiday in whatever manner you do, take a moment to look up in the sky in the early evening and see if you can spot Venus and Jupiter. The Moon will be joining the area on 30 November and 1 December. For more information about this apparition, see the NASA webpage at http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2008/24nov_skyshow.htm
