I realised that Venus and Jupiter should be close together on 1st December, and as it was a clear afternoon, I had a look about 4pm. I could see Jupiter and a crescent moon.....but where was Venus?
The only place it could be was behind the moon! A quick check of t'internet confirmed this, and I discovered that Venus would reappear at about ten past five. Sure enough it did, and the pictures are below:
A nice sight, which doesn't happen very often, as the Moon normally passes just above, or just below the planets.
