    I was out with the binoculars last night and took a look at Venus and the Pleiades.  They are close together now.  Venus was in the bottom of the field of view and the Pleiades was in the top of the field.  Tomorrow, Friday the 3rd, Venus will be in the Pleiades itself.  I'm not sure if we will be able to see it here or not, be raining/snowing, not nice tomorrow.  Here is a link to their locations:    https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap200402.html
    If you can, get out and have a look it's pretty neat, doesn't happen often.  They'll still be close over the weekend.
