Earlier this week we saw Jupiter and Venus in the Colorado sky appear closer than they will be for another year, but if you missed it,  it's not too late to catch a glimpse of this very cool celestial event.

If you will look in the western sky shortly in the mid-evening hours, you will still see Jupiter and Venus fairly close together. It's quite a sight when you think about what you are seeing. You should be able to see these planets paired together for the rest of the month, and then they will transition to the morning sky in August.

There is even more to see as we move through the month of July. According to earthsky.org, Venus will continue to get brighter and brighter for the next week until it reaches the pinnacle of its brightness around July 9-10.

You will be able to see Venus in the nighttime sky throughout the month of July until it finally vanishes from view by mid-August.

Aside from the moon, Venus will be the brightest object in the night sky. If you have a telescope, this will be the best time of the year to view our planetary neighbor.
