SKIES OVER WEST SEATTLE: Planetary conjunction visible right now

5:51 PM: Skywatching expert/educator Alice Enevoldsen says the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn is visible from West Seattle right now, to the south/southwest, until 6:30 or so, though they’re not as close together as they were a few days ago, when clouds rendered it impossible to see.

    Not the clearest picture, however, perfect skies for viewing tonight.

    Was moved by stargazing and seeing this rare planetary event, also saw a bright and long shooting star. Hope others are able to get out and enjoy this too.

    I saw this at about 5:30. Thought it was a plane at first but remembered reading about it. Definitely a cool site to see. Thanks for confirming.
