NASA: Amazing Sunset Sky Show on June 30, Jupiter and Venus Converge for First Time in 2000 Years

According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA):

“The two brightest planets in the night sky, Venus and Jupiter, are going to converge for a jaw-dropping close encounter. You don’t want to miss any of the action.

“When the sun goes down, step outside and look west.  You don’t have to wait until the sky fades to black.  Venus and Jupiter are so bright, you can see then shining through the twilight.  In fact, some people say the planets are especially beautiful when they are surrounded by the cobalt hue of the early evening sky–so don’t wait.

“The main event occurs on June 30th. On that night, Venus and Jupiter will be a jaw-dropping 1/3rd of a degree apart.  That’s less than the diameter of a full Moon.  You’ll be able to hide the pair not just behind the palm of your outstretched hand, but behind your little pinky finger,” states NASA. “Sky & Telescope suggests that a similar rare conjunction of Venus and Jupiter may have been what’s been called the ‘Star of Bethlehem’ in 3-2 BC. There has not been a brighter, closer planetary conjunction in the 2,000 years since.
