  • How and where to watch the planetary event — Venus-Jupiter conjunction

Significantly closer and visible to Jupiter's lower left is Venus, appearing through Earth's atmospheric clouds as unusually blue. The North Taurid Meteor Shower peaks this weekend and you have a good chance of spotting Venus and Jupiter too!

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

Viewers in NY will see the Jupiter rise first at 5.26am, with Venus coming at 5.31am, according to Space.com.

You should go out about 45 minutes before sunrise, and can expect a better a view if you stand on a hilltop or balcony, according to EarthSky.

Target pulls fidget spinners over lead concerns
Fidget spinners have come under fire since going viral for parts that can easily break off and become a choking hazard. Many light-up fidget spinners also contain lithium batteries that can cause severe internal burns if swallowed.


The two planets, which are about 416 million miles apart in the solar system, are due to rise within 0.3 degrees of each other and will "snuggle" close to each other in the morning. The conjunction of these two planets can be seen towards the south east with telescopes as well as naked eye in the sky dome in the eastern horizon.

The press service of Roskosmos said that on the morning of 13 November, the Russians will be able to observe the convergence of Venus and Jupiter.

In the UK, Venus will rise at 5:56 a.m. local time, followed by Jupiter at 6:05 a.m. As a broad target time, shoot for an hour before sunrise. Seeing the sun through a telescope or binoculars can cause serious eye Problem without proper sun filters. That is smaller than the diameter of the moon according to Earth Sky.

The conjunction also happened in 2015 and 2016, when the two planets appeared even closer together.
