History of the universe

Okay, it's not exactly history, and it's available to the whole world not just Canada.  But really if you have any sense of the big picture like a historian should, you owe it to yourself to walk outside one of these evenings.  And just look at Jupiter and Venus low in the western sky after sunset.  They are not hard to find. And they will dance together all this week. With binoculars better than mine, it is said, you can spot four of the moons of Jupiter crossing the planet.
