Venus, Jupiter in conjuction after sunset

Venus and Jupiter will be at their clos­est — or in con­juc­tion of 3 degrees — Thurs­day. Look to the West­ern skies near sun­set and up to four hours after sun­set.

Venus will be brighter because it is closer to earth. After Thurs­day they will start to drift apart. But don’t wait till Thurs­day to view the sky.

Here is a cool illus­trat­ed guide to the con­juc­tion from Earth Sky.
