CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Did you see the Moon, Venus and Mars right next to each other Friday night? No worries! Right after sunset Saturday, look west. You'll see the waxing crescent moon high above Venus, which appears as a very bright 'star' below the moon, but of course it's a planet. It gets better. The other dimmer object just to the upper right of Venus is Mars! The picture here was shot Friday evening by Steve and you can see Mars above Venus. Saturday night they will be even closer together.
Take your kids outside and introduce them to the wonders of our solar system!
