Morning Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter

2015-10-E-VenusJupiter

MORNING PLANETARY CONJUNCTIONS: On the morning of Sunday, October 25, Venus and Jupiter are lined up in a conjunction, and Mars is still sharing the sky with these brighter objects. On this day, Venus is at its greatest western elongation, and is therefore at its maximum distance from the rising Sun, so these two will be pretty high above the horizon. But Venus and Jupiter will be separated by 1.1 degrees, over two lunar diameters, and will not be as close as they were during their conjunction back in June, when they were less than one lunar diameter apart.

THE PLANETARY DANCE CONTINUES!!! KEEP WATCHING CLASSICAL ASTRONOMY, AND TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS!!!
