Definitely not a sight to be missed! I've seen it several times already, and still enjoy the view.

Of course here in Seattle, Washington, we've had nothing but rain, rain, rain, rain and more rain (oh, and did I mention c-c-c-cold too?!) all week. No Venus and Jupiter for US! But I hope the rest of you get to see them.

California has decided to break its dry winter drought this week. Haven't been able to see the sky for weeks.
