Venus Jupiter conjunction: Here is What the Celestial Event Means

(Telescope-users might even get a chance to see some of Jupiter's moons.) You'll need a clear view of the horizon, though, as the planets will appear very low in the sky.

In Los Angeles, the conjunction will be well below the horizon when it occurs, though, on the morning of November 13, Venus and Jupiter will rise at 5:19 a.m. and 5:18 a.m., respectively.

Venus and Jupiter will get together in the November sky, and early risers with a clear view of the eastern horizon can catch a view of this celestial rendezvous.

Venus and Jupiter will appear together in the sky before sunrise.

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. This week, another conjunction of Venus and Jupiter is occurring and is visible to much of planet Earth to the east just before sunrise.

Quick hits from Wisconsin's win over Iowa
MI (8-2, 5-2 Big Ten) is on the road again next week against No. 8 Wisconsin, which defeated No. 20 Iowa 38-14 on Saturday. The Badgers answered Jackson's second touchdown with a defensive score of their own to go up 24-14 and coasted from there.

Coming about 40 minutes before sunrise in the United Kingdom, the two planets will appear very close in the sky, seperated roughly by half the width of the full Moon.

The conjunction will be slightly more hard to watch in the United States, because sunrise comes earlier than in Britain. The planets will stay visible for about an hour until sunrise at 7:15 a.m. local time.

Both the planets are nowhere near each other and just happen to line up when observed from our Earthly vantage point. It happens every 13 months. with 2016 being the latest.

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. The next one is expected on 22 January 2019.
