Here is What the Celestial Event Means — Venus Jupiter conjunction

On Monday morning Venus and Jupiter will be only 0.3 degrees apart in the morning sky before dawn. They are in the constellation

Earthsky.com defines the conjunctions as "the close approach of two or more solar system bodies or a close approach of a single solar system body with another object in the sky".

On Monday, Jupiter and Venus will be visible to the naked eye in the sky before sunrise.

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. 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). If needed, a simple binocular should provide the necessary magnification, says the report.

The two brighest planets are coming together.

.

The planets will be slightly further apart and will appear in the constellation Virgo.

Both the planets will appear in conjunction in the south-east and may appear like one bright star.

Venus is known as the brightest planet and it always follows up as the second one and will be "snuggling "with Jupiter". There are a number of sky scanning apps available for smartphones that can pinpoint the constellations and the actual position of the planets for easy viewing.

Sunrise will occur mostly between 6:30 a.m. and 6:50 for observers in the continental USA according to timeanddate.com; if the horizon is relatively flat, skywatchers can get a good view of the two planets (unobscured by the sun's direct light) until daybreak. The Northern hemisphere, on the whole, will have the best views.

Two videos released this week explain the conjunction and how to see it.

While celestial episodes such as this leads many to marvel at the sky and experience such spectacles with awe, there are certain sections of people who seem to believe that such occurrences bring misfortune and even disaster.
