Venus and Jupiter Planetary Conjunction: What It Is and How to See It


Venus and Jupiter will rendezvous this weekend, with the two bright planets appearing to pass close to each other in what astronomers call a planetary conjunction.

The planets will appear nearest one another on Saturday, April 30, at 3 p.m. Eastern time. Since it will be very difficult to see the conjunction in daylight, the morning before or after that moment—on April 30 or Sunday, May 1—are your best chances to see Venus and Jupiter seem to nearly collide, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. After Sunday, the planets will look like they’re moving apart.
