Venus-Jupiter conjunction is taking place Monday morning and it's going to be beautiful

The two planets, which are about 416 million miles apart in the solar system, are due to rise within 0.3 degrees of each other and will "snuggle" close to each other in the morning.

The painted message sequence, indicating the exact time of the appearance of Mars, Jupiter, Venus and the moon in the morning sky in each of those days.

The close pairing of the two brightest planets is known as the Venus-Jupiter conjunction.

Skywatchers in the Northern Hemisphere will get the best views of the phenomenon, with those in Britain likely to get an especially clear view. On this day in 2008, visible the world over, was an unusual superposition of our Moon and the planets Venus and Jupiter.

Neither planet will have risen for observers on the U.S. East Coast by then - that won't happen for another few hours, at about 5:30 a.m. EST (1030 GMT). It happens every 13 months. with 2016 being the latest.

What is Venus Jupiter conjunction? .

For those watching from the UK, Venus will rise at 5:56 am and Jupiter can be seen at 5:58 am. The sun rises at 7:15 a.m. local time.

Since the event will be followed by the rising sun, viewers should protect their eyes and make sure never to stare directly at the sun through binoculars or a telescope.

Anyone too far west of NY will miss the actual conjunction, though Venus and Jupiter will rise hight in the sky than for the United Kingdom: 12.8 degrees and 12.9 degrees respectively.
