Looking up into the sky now, you can see the moon and what looks like two bright stars, but they are actually Venus and Jupiter. It looks pretty amazing.

Keep in mind that this head-turning display of three celestial objects crowded together is merely an illusion of perspective: The moon is only about 251,400 miles from Earth, while Venus is nearly 371 times farther away, at 93.2 million miles. Meanwhile, Jupiter is almost 2,150 times farther away than our natural satellite at 540.3 million miles.
