Venus and Jupiter will be visible near each other in skies around the world tomorrow and Wednesday in a rare conjunction event
The planets Jupiter and Venus will appear 22 minutes of arc apart, which is a measurement used in astronomy to track the size and positions of objects in the night sky.
For comparison, the full moon is 30 minutes of arc across.
A small telescope or a pair of binoculars will easily resolve the two planets, and show them in the same field of view.
Venus is now just over 56 million miles (90 million km) from Earth and Jupiter about 10 times further at 560 million miles (900 million km).
But Jupiter is also 11.8 times bigger than Venus, which means that the two planets will appear as a similar size.
