(Newser) – Venus, Jupiter, and Earth's moon are coming together Saturday and Sunday to put on a brilliant show in the night sky, the AP reports. Venus and Jupiter have already been lining up, and a crescent moon will join them this weekend; stargazers will be able to see the convergence at twilight all around the world. After this weekend, the moon will move away, but Venus and Jupiter will continue to get closer together. By mid-March, from a viewing perspective, the two planets will be only 3 degrees apart.
