Moon, Venus, and Jupiter (January 2019)

As described in a previous post, the Moon, along with the two planets Jupiter and Venus, form a celestial triangle, visible anywhere in the Philippines and in most parts of the world. If you missed this event earlier today, you may still catch it tomorrow (by tomorrow, the moon has moved a bit already, thus, you will see a different configuration).
