Venus And Jupiter Are Having A Celestial Date Tonight

Two planets are set to make a dramatic and spectacular sighting on June 30. The second and the fifth planets farthest from the sun, Venus and Jupiter, are going to converge at the end of the month. According to astronomers, Jupiter and the stars behind it have gradually slipped lower in the evening twilight. Venus, on the other hand, has stayed up high because of its rapid orbital motion around the sun. The resulting slow-motion convergence, which should be visible in a clear sky through the use of sky-gazing equipment, will give a fascinating view.
