the moon, pleiades, and venus

they're not in the same part of the sky, unfortunately, but you can see them all over the next few nights.

tonight, the bright waning moon rises just beside the pleiades (tiny little dipper) star cluster, in the east.

just after sunset on the other side of the sky, venus sets close to antares.

northern hemisphere folks can still see the summer triangle quite clearly overhead these days... made up of the stars vega, altair, and deneb.
