  • Celestial Alignment - Monday 1st Dec.

    Apparently, on the night of Monday the 1st of December, a rare celestial alignment will take place. A smiley face will appear in the sky! The crescent moon will form the mouth, while Jupiter and Venus will be the eyes! Jupiter and Venus are the two brightest natural objects in the night sky (not including the moon, obviously), and are sometimes mistaken for man-made satellites or UFOs. Also, apparently, during WW2 Venus was thought to be an enemy aircraft at one point, and drew Anti-Aircraft fire!

    Anyway, keep your eyes peeled on Monday night if there's a clear sky, and try to snap some pictures for those of us who might not see it!

    Bah, here on the East Coast all I get is an upside down frowny face. :(

    Anybody else take a gander at the night sky? I caught a glimpse from the parking lot as I was leaving class just thirty minutes ago (to many trees round my house). Jupiter and Venus are quite impressive, I've either never noticed them before or knew what they were. :p

        I saw it last night, truly amazing. It looked like a smiley face tilted to the left.

          Saw it in the afternoon, but I can't see it right now. My house is blocking it.

            Gah, had a cloudy sky over here in England. Couldn't see a thing. :(

              I saw it, it made like... A Sad face in Denver rather then a smiley face an Upside down Sad face for that matter, at a 45* Angle of the eyes to the Right from the view here at earth... It was weird looking.

                    I completely missed it.

                    Anyone got a picture of the Great O' Smiley Face?
