Here is the subtle but magnificent scene in the evening sky tonight from Scatterbranch, TX. The labels were added after the fact to help you navigate. Get outside and look! Tomorrow night the moon will be right next to Jupiter. Notice that the three planets all form a straight line – that is the plane of our solar system. Earth’s Moon formed after the rest of this stuff and its orbit is slightly different. Which is why it is not “lined up” with the rest.
