Venus and Jupiter Dancing Again in the Pre-Dawn Sky
The last of the three recent conjunctions of Venus and Jupiter can be seen any clear morning this month, in the east an hour or so before sunrise. This conjunction—the last of three during 2014-15— is very similar to the Venus/Jupiter conjunction of 2 BC, which many believe is what the Wisemen experienced as the “star’ that guided them to Bethlehem and the Holy Family.
You won’t want to miss conjunction of Venus and Jupiter it is a once in a lifetime experience. Mars and Mercury are also in the same part of the sky providing an opportunity to view 4 of the visible naked eye planets at the same time.
