Venus-Jupiter conjunction: How and where to watch the planetary event

12 November 2017

Conjunctions between Venus and Jupiter are far from rare events - taking place at mean intervals of 13 months.

Significantly closer and visible to Jupiter's lower left is Venus, appearing through Earth's atmospheric clouds as unusually blue.

As seen previous year, the two planets will appear like a giant, bright ball of glob.

Venus is known as the brightest planet and it always follows up as the second one and will be "snuggling "with Jupiter".

Venus will be 152 million miles (246 million km) from us, while Jupiter is almost four times farther away, at 594 million miles (956 million km), the portal said. On the far right, above the horizon, is our Moon, in a waxing crescent phase.

Like any astronomical event, the conjunction will be best viewed in a rural location away from any light and pollution.

Though telescope users are strictly warned to be careful with the binoculars and telescope as the sun will be rising from the same side and if caught in telescope it can cause serious damage to the eyes because of no proper use of a sun filter.
