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

The two planets, which are about 416 million miles apart in the solar system, are due to rise within 0.3 degrees of each other and will "snuggle" close to each other in the morning.

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. "So these close conjunctions are destined to occur", according to Sky and Telescope. "Since the major planets all orbit the sun in almost the same plane, from the point of view of the Earth, they travel in paths across the sky that are roughly similar".
