Look across evening sky for full moon, Jupiter and Venus

MIAMI VALLEY — Tuesday night, with clear skies, it will be a great opportunity to do some stargazing.

The moon became full at 7:40 a.m. Tuesday morning. This month’s full moon is known as the worm moon. Tuesday night, the moon will look full even though it is technically going to be a waning gibbous.

If you head outside Tuesday and Wednesday evening between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. you will find the full moon rising in the east and two visible planets setting in the west!

The nearly full moon will rise around 6:50 p.m., appearing big and bright! At the same time, look to the other side of the sky to see Venus and Jupiter slowly setting below the horizon. Venus will be brighter than Jupiter and both planets won’t twinkle like a star does.

If you can find all three in the night sky. Share your photos using the hashtag #SkyWitness7.
