Venus, Jupiter Align to Dazzle in Night Sky

The Moon, Venus (second) and Jupiter (third) were closely aligned in the sky late Wednesday, March 28, 2012 as seen from southern Manitoba. In what's called a conjunction, the two planets align themselves for several hours in mid-March and are best seen about 45 minutes after sunset. The bright planets won't be this close together again until May 28, 2013. (STAN MILOSEVIC / MANITOBAPHOTOS.COM)
