Moon, Venus and Jupiter on collision course?

Dear Readers:

A rare celestial sight tonight if you live anywhere in the eastern half of North America!

A rare conjunction of two planets and the Moon.
The Moon, Venus and Jupiter will come so close together tonight (less than half of a degree apart in the sky) that in some places they may look like one giant glowing orb. Since they'll both be lit by the sun, a telescope isn't required to view them, and they'll even be visible in urban areas with light pollution.

Scientists have assured The Perspective Research Department that the danger of collision is minimal and everything is expected to be back to normal by tomorrow evening! -Ed.
