Astronomy alert.

In the western sky, shortly after sunset, 45 degrees up will be Jupiter and Venus, less than one third of a degree a part. (For reference the moon is 1/2 a degree across.) Though Jupiter is the second brightest object in the sky Venus way outshines it. This close approach is called a conjunction.

This is very easy to see and well worth a look.
