August 19, 2014 - Jupiter & Venus

Edhat's go-to astronomy source, Chuck McPartlin, informed readers of a fun sight to see early Monday morning. The planets Jupiter and Venus were seen almost canoodling one another with radiant light. Although just because they look really close, doesn't mean they actually are. Chuck says the two planets aren't really that close to one another, they just looked that way from our point of view on Earth. Venus was 150 million miles away, and Jupiter was 579 million miles away. Thanks to the edhat readers who sent in photos for the rest of us sleepy heads.

In local news, an edhat subscriber spotted a mountain lion on the Romero Canyon Trail, a small vegetation fire broke out at UCSB, and edhatters discuss the history of Gaucho Football: undefeated since 1992. Read these stories and more, below.
