A rare alignment

I saw this spectacle Monday night when I walked out of my office building. It was really amazing, although at the time I had no idea that the two bright spots were Venus and Jupiter (WOW!!) and that this particular conjunction is quite rare.

It won't happen again until May 11, 2011, so catch it if you still can. It was still visible here last night, although the Moon was much further away than on Monday.
