Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter
Tonight, June 30, 2015, for observers in the northern hemisphere, (sorry, Gossamer and valmnz ) Venus and Jupiter will appear about 3 degree a part. This is a picture taken in Puerto Rico on the 29th of June. I link it to give the reader an idea of what the conjunction will look like tonight.
It means nothing. It affects nothing. It just looks cool.
This is another page with more information on the line up calling it a “double star” but it is nothing of the sort. They’re planets, not stars. Anyway. I couldn’t get the video to play, but I frequently can’t. I link it assuming other people will have more luck than I.
Mr. Siduri and I went out to take a peek last night. I was pretty cool. I hope people reading get a chance to see this. Facing west, you look just below the constellation of Leo.
