If you did not know, a nice planetary conjunction is coming up.

Watch the evening sky after the sunset for the next couple of weeks. Venus, and Jupiter, both very bright objects even from a light polluted sky are drawing closer.

On November 30/ December 1st, these two will be the closest. Don’t miss it – particularly so if you missed the conjunction of these planets early in the year in February 08.

Here is a simulation of the conjunction on YouTube.

And BTW, some people believe the “Star of Christmas” was indeed a very close planetary conjunction.
