Attention stargazers - Mercury, Jupiter and Venus appear very close together in the sky, May 24-26, 2013.
Three planets are coming together in the evening sky at the moment, putting on a celestial show that won’t be seen again for more than a decade.
“The view should be best about 30 to 45 minutes after sunset,” said Alan MacRobert, a senior editor at Sky & Telescope magazine. Find out how to spot Jupiter, Venus and Mercury.
This “lightbulb” Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) shows the three classical parts of a CME: leading edge, void, and core. In coronagraph images, direct sunlight is blocked by an occulter, revealing the surrounding faint corona. The approximate size of the Sun is represented by the white circle. Taken on February 27, 2000 by the LASCO C3 coronagraph.
