Take a Look Around
Left image Jupiter above the eastern horizon, Right Image, Venus above the western horizon, both at the same time in the evening.
If you go out tonight and over the next few days at around 8:15 pm you will see an interesting sight (well, at least to me). If you look to the west, you will see bright Venus sinking towards the horizon, and if you look to the east you will see bright Jupiter rising. This is not so surprising, butr at roughly 8:15 pm they are approximately the same distance from the horizon. So spin around, and see the bright planets dance.
