CLEVELAND – Now that we’ve said good-bye to cloudy skies for a while, the nighttime sky is going to be worth a look.

If you head outside around sunset this evening (9:04 p.m.) and look west, you should be able to get a very clear view of Venus and Jupiter. Look again tomorrow night, and you’ll notice that they have gotten closer together. The two planets will actually be at their closest point to each other on June 30th, so you’ll really be able to see the difference over the next week.

Also, with a clear sky on tap for tomorrow night, June 24th, there is a chance that the Aurora Borealis, or northern lights, might be visible here. Find a clear, unobstructed view of the northern horizon and stay tuned!
