    Hey guys and Girls Jupiter and Venus is well worth a look tomorrow night ..
    they will be at their bright'est and will remain that way for the next 3 or 4 weeks .. if you look towards the Western skie's you will not mistake them .. they will look like 2 huge beacons burning .. actually they are 450 million miles apart .. as the night progreses they will disapear deep into the western sky .. best time to have a look is about an hour after sunset ..

      I saw it last week up in Northumberland. I agree it is very clear and easy to identify.

        Yes I've noticed them the last few nights, they are very close together that's quite unusual.
