Venus & Jupiter Shinning Bright Over Park Slope

How remarkable. That’s Venus and Jupiter out my bedroom window, visible in the predawn darkness and morning twilight.  According to Earth Sky, you should be able to see two planets just before and after dawn throughout July.

I was having trouble sleeping and I popped out of bed.

Our bedroom window faces north but gives us a view of the east. Venus and Jupiter are the sky’s brightest and second-brightest planets. Very bright tonight!

Good thing I couldn’t sleep.

From my window, it looks like they’re straight up from Second Street and Seventh Avenue. It’s a sight to behold. Such bright planets, here in Brooklyn.

And there’s more planet watching to come.  Earth Sky says: “mid-July 2012, the waning moon will pass the bright planet Venus and Jupiter, making for some spectacular predawn sky scenes.”
