Venus Jupiter conjunction: Here is What the Celestial Event Means

Venus-Jupiter conjunction is taking place Monday morning and it's going to be beautiful

Venus and Jupiter conjunction to be visible in dawn sky

Observers will have to have an uninterrupted view to the south-east as the planets will be very low in the sky.

At their closest, Venus and Jupiter will be 0.3o apart which is less than the apparent diameter of the moon (0.5o).

In the pre-dawn hours, the two brightest planets in our solar system, Venus and Jupiter, will appear to move past each other forming what looks like a bright double star.

The third phase of the odd-even scheme will come into force from November 13 to November 17. At this level, not just children and elderly, but everyone is warned to remain indoors.

Two of the brightest objects in our night sky will come together early Monday morning, according to NASA. Mars will appear about half way between Jupiter and the crescent moon. From the western United States, when they rise, the gap between the planets will have widened slightly, to 21 arc minutes (0.35 degrees), the online portal Space reports. Look out to the east, focusing just above the horizon and you might be able to see the conjunction of Venus and Jupiter.

The phenomenon, known as the Venus-Jupiter conjunction, will happen just before sunrise on November 13 or November 14, depending on where you live in the world.

Jupiter and Venus will pass within 17 arc minuites or 0.28 degress of each other.

Xi noted his meeting with the South Korean leader marked a turnaround in South Korea-China relations. The two leaders last met in July in Berlin, on the sidelines of the Group of 20, or G-20, summit.

Like any astronomical event, the conjunction will be best viewed in a rural location away from any light and pollution.

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. The sun rises at 6:19am, so you'll want to be out by 5am.

Since the event will be followed by the rising sun, viewers should protect their eyes and make sure never to stare directly at the sun through binoculars or a telescope.
