Venus and Jupiter conjunction to be visible in dawn sky

Share
Venus-Jupiter conjunction is taking place Monday morning and it's going to be beautiful

They are going to rise just 0.3 degrees from each other.

The moon shines along with Venus, glowing in the centre of the image is Venus and, to its right, Jupiter. While Venus and Jupiter are 416 million miles apart, they will appear as if the two planets are orbiting the Sun side by side for a brief period.

Venus and Jupiter will appear together in the sky before sunrise.

As seen a year ago, the two planets will appear like a giant, bright ball of glob.

It is, however, not the first time this celestial event has occurred. As most planets in the Solar System orbit the Sun on a similar plane, from the Earth's point of view, they follow a more or less similar travel path across the sky.

I think that's the biggest key for Missouri: "cut down on turnovers, and don't give Tennessee a lot of short-field situations". Given the offensive struggles and Missouri's strengths, the Vols finding themselves within striking distance is a positive.

Venus will appear together with Jupiter just before sunrise. Neither planet will have risen for observers on the U.S. East Coast by then - that won't happen for another few hours, at about 5:30 a.m. EST (1030 GMT). Even after and before the conjunction the two planets will remain in close proximity of each other.

For those watching from the UK, Venus will rise at 5:56 am and Jupiter can be seen at 5:58 am.

You should go out about 45 minutes before sunrise, and can expect a better a view if you stand on a hilltop or balcony, according to EarthSky. The planets will stay visible for about an hour until sunrise at 7:15 a.m. local time.

In the video from JPL, the narrator notes that skywatchers should be careful because the sun will rise on the heels of the planets, and of course, you should never look directly at the sun, especially with binoculars or a telescope.

Anyone too far west of NY will miss the actual conjunction, though Venus and Jupiter will rise hight in the sky than for the United Kingdom: 12.8 degrees and 12.9 degrees respectively.
