Jupiter embraces Venus



Tonight we will witness Jupiter and Venus’ "passionate embrace" just after the sunset in the western sky. The "dazzling" Venus shines literally 8 times more than the experienced but "aged" Jupiter, and because the apparent distance between the two planets will be the minimum between them, the two celestial bodies will look like one!

A great opportunity then to choose a dark area on the island, maybe a beach, and to observe the sunset and Jupiter’s “kiss” to Venus.
