Big Stars Go Bump
FEB 11 – CONJUNCTION OF VENUS AND JUPITER:
Look to the southeast horizon-ideally with the aid of a telescope-about 20 to 30 minutes before sunrise and you’ll hopefully catch a clear view of Jupiter and Venus. If you’re only viewing with the naked eye, the planets will appear as bright dots and be nestled close together. Of course, the planets only appear to touch – in reality, Venus is about 73 million miles away from Earth, and the gas giant Jupiter is nearly 558 million miles away.
MARCH 5 – CONJUNCTION OF MERCURY AND JUPITER:
Jupiter and Mercury are barely above the east-southeast horizon during dawn, but on the morning of March 5, they will be engaged in a very close conjunction, separated by just 0.35 degrees. Mercury will sit just to the upper left of much brighter Jupiter. The solar system’s biggest planet handily outshines the smallest by a factor of 7. Bring ordinary binoculars to view these two planets about a half hour before sunrise.
