Don’t miss Venus and Jupiter shine extra close in the morning sky Saturday!

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

The planetary meet up, also known as a conjunction, brings Venus and Jupiter within just one-half degree of each other, which is equal to the apparent width of the moon. This is the closest Venus and Jupiter have appeared since August 2016. The next time the two planets will appear to cozy up to each other will be March 1, 2023.
