Witness the Celestial Spectacle: Jupiter and Venus to Align Tonight!

Tonight, skywatchers around the world will be treated to a rare celestial event—the Jupiter-Venus Conjunction. The two planets will appear to ‘kiss’ in the night sky, creating a spectacular sight.

The conjunction will be visible from all around the world, though the exact timing and visibility will vary depending on your location. In the United States, the conjunction will be most visible shortly after sunset.

To get the best view of the conjunction, skywatchers should look for a bright point of light in the western sky and then look for a second bright point of light slightly above it. Both will be visible to the naked eye, though binoculars or a telescope can provide a better view.

The sight will be especially visible in Kansas, where the two planets will be in alignment. This will be the first time in over a decade that this particular alignment will be visible in the state.

The Jupiter-Venus Conjunction is a rare event, so don’t miss your chance to catch a glimpse of this spectacular sight!
