If you’ve noticed the two bright objects in the western sky just after sunset, you aren’t alone. Venus and Jupiter are in conjunction this week and are only 3 degrees apart. Here’s an update from spaceweather.com:
VENUS-JUPITER CONJUNCTION: This is a great week to admire the sunset. Venus and Jupiter are side-by-side only 3o apart in the western sky, beaming through the twilight as soon as the sun goes down. The two planets are closest together on March 12th and March 13th. Try to catch them before the sky fades completely black. Venus and Jupiter surrounded by twilight blue is a wonderful sight indeed.
