WEDNESDAY NIGHT SIGHTS: Jupiter and the Moon hang out on Wednesday night

Since we have clear sky and somewhat mild conditions, why not take a look at a rare event. Whether you're out on your deck or stuck in rush hour traffic, the moon is brilliant and easy to see. The moonrise for this Wednesday is 6:10, but the moons will appear bright in the sky all evening and its 99.1% full. 

Along for the ride will be the planet Jupiter. It will look like a pale white twinkling star. As the evening moves on, you will be able to witness these two ascending the sky side by side. Just know that you're not looking at a star, but instead the largest planet in our solar system. Happy star gazing everyone and enjoy the milder temps.
