Strange Universe 11/28/21

Earth's sister planet, Venus, has heated up the evening sky all year. No doubt you've seen that dazzling "star" lurking low in the west after sunset almost this entire year. This major eye-catching presence is now in its final weeks. The good news is that, like many things in life, it is most spectacular just before it vanishes, and next week crescent Moon will join Venus just as that nearest-of-all-planets stands at its very brightest of the year.
