Jupiter and Venus will pair up in the sky on Monday morning, shining brightly together shortly before sunrise.

The two planets will appear so close together that they may look like they are just one bright star rather than two planets.

This is the closest these two planets will appear all year, an astronomical event known as a conjunction.

conjunction nov 11

Venus and Jupiter may appear very close to each other in the morning sky, but they are actually more than 400 million miles away from each other.


Venus and Jupiter will rise together about one hour before sunrise in the eastern sky, but they will remain low on the horizon.

The planets will be visible for around an hour before the light from the rising sun becomes too bright to spot the planets.

A telescope isn’t needed to see the planets as they are two of the brightest planets in the night sky. However, a telescope or a pair of high-powered binoculars focused on Jupiter will reveal the planet's colorful bands of clouds, as well as its four largest moons.

Those planning to use a telescope or binoculars during the event should use caution since the sun will be rising in the same part of the sky as Venus and Jupiter. Looking at the sun through a telescope or binoculars can lead to serious eye damage without the proper solar filters.

Mars will also be visible to the east before sunrise on Monday, appearing about halfway between Jupiter and the crescent moon. Mars is visible with the naked eye and appears slightly red compared to the stars around it.

Monday AM Viewing Map 11.11 PM


The best viewing conditions in the United States early on Monday morning will be across the Mississippi Valley and over the central Rockies where skies will be mainly clear.
