Venus is gone, but Jupiter is up

You may have noticed that the really bright star low in the west is now gone.  That was Venus, which spent 9 months gracing our evening sky and is now rounding the sun, to reappear in the dawn sky next month.

However, the sky show must go on, and Jupiter is now the star in the southeastern sky.  If you have any trouble finding it, just look for the brightest light near the Moon for the next 3 nights.
