Freaky Friday - Sky Watching

If you enjoy watching the night sky, you might want to look to the skies on the evening of May 26 (this coming Sunday.)

On that day, three planets - Jupiter, Venus and Mercury - will form a triangle in the sky that will be easily seen from Earth. Those three planets are the brightest in our solar system so this sight will be especially exciting.

The best time to look is 30 to 60 minutes after the sun sets. Then look to the western skies.
