I've noticed a planet near the moon for overn 2 months now. Do you know which planet it is and how long will it be there?

MIKE MOSS SAYS:     Lorenda (and for similar questions from Bill Smaltz and Lisa),    The setting Moon has been near the planet Venus for a couple of evenings recently and drifted to between Venus and the planet Saturn last night (the 18th). You can usually get a quick update on interesting sights in the sky at the following address:

As for the name of a close appearance of two or more disparate objects in a small area of the sky, that is often called a "conjunction."
