NASA announcement: The sunset of May 26th, 2013 will be extra special. On that date, Venus, Jupiter and Mercury will gather in the fading twilight to form a bright triangle only three degrees wide. The three planets will draw into closest alignment on the evening of May 26.
The best time to look is about 30 to 60 minutes after sunset. The three planets will be hugging the horizon, so a clear view of the western sky is essential.
