See the old moon and Venus conjunction tonight

About an hour and a half before sunset on Thursday (Aug. 25), Venus will shine close to the old moon in the early-evening sky. 

The waning crescent moon will pass a mere 4°17′ to the north of the bright planet Venus. This close encounter, or conjunction, occurs at 4:58 p.m. EDT (20:58 GMT), when the two objects share the same right ascension or the same ecliptic longitude, according to In-the-Sky.org (opens in new tab).
