Don’t miss Venus and Jupiter shining very closely in Saturday morning’s sky!

Venus and Jupiter, the two brightest planets in the sky, are headed for a close encounter tomorrow (April 30).

The planetary encounter, also known as a conjunction, brings Venus and Jupiter within just half a degree of each other, which is equal to the apparent width of the moon. This is the closest appearance of Venus and Jupiter since August 2016. The next time the two planets approach each other will be on March 1, 2023.
