Venus and Jupiter will appear together in the sky

Venus and Jupiter will appear together in the sky

Both Venus and Jupiter will be visible to the naked eye, though a telescope of powerful pair of binoculars will give a clear view - if you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of Jupiter's moons.

If you miss it, the next conjunction of Venus and Jupiter will be on January 22, 2019, according to In the Sky. On the far right, above the horizon, is our Moon, in a waxing crescent phase.

Weather permitting, for those observers who don't have any tall obstructions such as trees or buildings toward the east-northeast, this "double planet" should make for a very striking visual spectacle, no doubt attracting the attention of even those who don't give more than a casual glance at the sky, Space added.

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

You should go out about 45 minutes before sunrise, and can expect a better a view if you stand on a hilltop or balcony, according to EarthSky. Essentially, they move on a path that is roughly similar, making it appear that they are close together.

The two worlds will only be visible for a short time before sunrise and won't climb more than about 7 degrees above the horizon.
