Planetary Grouping at Dusk: Crescent Moon, Venus, and Mercury

A planetary grouping of the thin crescent moon, Venus, and Mercury can be observed right after sunset on Oct. 28, 2011.  The celestial sight is located near the western horizon. Use binoculars to have a clear view of the trio, most especially Mercury.

I am hoping that by this time, we would have clear skies. It’s always raining here in the Philippines.😦
