Close Pairing of Venus and Jupiter

On February 1 and 2, Venus and Jupiter will appear very close to each other in the southeast one hour before dawn. Venus is the brighter of the two.

This is the closest conjunction of the two brightest planets that’s readily observable between 2004 and 2014.

* These simulated views of Venus-Jupiter conjunction as seen from the PAGASA Observatory, UP Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines were taken using the Starry Night Pro software.
