Tonight: Star-and-planet-studded sky

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2012 at 10:30 AM

Venus and Jupiter - the two brightest planets - will vividly be on display tonight for our viewing pleasure. For about four hours after sunset (7:51 p.m. EST), be sure to check out the conjunction (space talk) as the planets seemingly collide in the beautiful night sky.

Can't get out to stare at stars tonight? It's supposed to be cloudy in Indy tomorrow, but don't fret: The kinds of people who know this stuff say this phenomenon will occur again on May 28, 2013.
