Coming this June will be a marvelous surprise in the sky: Jupiter and Venus will conjoin on the 30th, making them closer in vicinity than they have ever been in the past. The interaction between the two planets will be best seen on June 30th and July 1st and is expected to be a phenomenal event in the world of astronomy.
Scientists and astronomers alike look forward to this event, as it marks an occurrence that won’t soon happen again.
June 18th marks another distinct day in June, which is when the moon will join Jupiter and Venus and form a circle with a diameter no greater than four degrees.
Jupiter and Venus have been racing against each other for quite some time, and will finally converge. Both planets can be seen every night this June on western skies, and by June 30th, the town will be so close that they appear to be one planet.
In order to identify them amongst other stars, try to fund the lightest tie that are present in the sky. Venus will actually be even brighter than Jupiter.
In addition to the convergence of Jupiter and Venus, it is possible that stargazers will have the opportunity to see four moons of Jupiter, which will look like very small stars.
Moonlight will make it more difficult to skywatch the first week of June, but conditions will improve in the second week as the full moon will assist with finding Saturn later on in the evening.
The event will be remarkable to witness, both in person and in images.
