Experience rare celestial 'three-in-one' shot

On 18th July 2015 Look to the western sky at dusk, and you may see three celestial bodies clustered together in a divine meeting.

Venus, Jupiter, Moon, together in celestial, rare celestial shot, July 18

Tomorrow, the Moon, Venus and Jupiter - the second, third and fourth brightest objects of the sky after the sun - will appear to be clustered together. View the sight from any location with a clear view of the west, with as few horizon obstructions as possible.

The Moon, Venus and Jupiter - the second, third and fourth brightest objects in the sky after the Sun, and in reality millions of kilometres apart, will appear to be almost side by side.

"To observe this event, go to a location with a clear view of the west with as few horizon obstructions as possible," said Dr Abel Yang, who teaches physics and astronomy at the National University of Singapore. "Given the tendency for buildings and trees to obstruct the horizon, a west-facing high-rise balcony or window may be a good idea."

The crescent Moon will appear as just a small silver sliver, and look as though it is hanging nearer to Jupiter. Even though Venus is smaller than Jupiter, it is brighter, due to its closer position to the Sun.

The sight of the close-knit trio comes days after the July 1 highly- anticipated meeting of Venus and Jupiter, with the two planets looking as if they were hanging right next to each other in the sky.
