The great evening grouping of planets [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap020429.html ] is coming to an end. Before all the planets [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap020510.html ] went their own separate directions [ http://CarnegieScienceCenter.org/exhibits/planet_calendar.asp ], however, the Moon [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap010218.html ] was kind enough to pose [ http://science.nasa.gov/spaceweather/planets/gallery_may02.html ] with some of them. The planets [ http://www.nineplanets.org ] in the above picture [ http://perso.club-internet.fr/legault/planets.html ], taken last week, are Venus [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap970507.html ] and Jupiter [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap020205.html ]. Mars [ http://www.nineplanets.org/mars.html ], Saturn [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap010702.html ], and even Mercury [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap000320.html ] appear to the lower right of Venus [ http://nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/photo_gallery/photogallery-venus.html ] but are too dim to be seen. Over the next two weeks, the Moon will rise [ http://aa.usno.navy.mil/data/docs/RS_OneYear.html ] later and later passing a full phase [ http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/ap990419.html ] on May 26. Venus and Jupiter will continue to shine, moving together [ http://SkyandTelescope.com/observing/objects/planets/article_572_4.asp ] until their closest approach on June 3. The Eiffel Tower [ http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/teiffel/uk/ ], however, is expected to remain right where it is.
