The Great Conjunction

The Great ConjunctionWhen the two brightest celestial objects in the night sky (excepting the Moon) pass next to each other, this is a grand event on an astronomical scale. Jupiter and Venus are doing just that, passing less than a Moon's diameter from each other in a great conjunction, peaking on Tuesday June 30th. A casual spectator should have no trouble seeing the pair, particularly after the glare of sunset subsides (around 9:00 pm or later on the west coast of the USA). Enjoy this rare

The year's finest conjunction is upon us. Chances are you've been watching Venus and Jupiter at dusk for some time. Like two lovers¬in a long courtship, they've¬been slowly¬approaching one another for the past several months and will finally reach their minimum separation of ¬just over 1/4¬ (half a Full Moon diameter) Tuesday evening June 30.(...)Read […]

The Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter in the Evening Sky

Starting tonight, go out and look west after sunset everyday. You will see two bright stars; but they are no stars, the brightest one is planet Venus and the other is Jupiter. If weather permits, you may also see a third bright star, and that is a real star named Regulus, the brightest star in […]

Approaching a Conjunction

Evening TrioEach day the planets Venus and Jupiter are drawing closer together in the evening sky, as Jupiter gradually sinks into the western twilight and Venus holds course. The two will have a close encounter (conjunction) on June 30th, but already the two are a striking pair in the evening sky, made more interesting by the waxing crescent Moon this weekend. Look for the trio just after sunset (around 8:45 pm in San Francisco) and watch them become more and more brilliant as the sunset sky tu
