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

Observers will have to have an uninterrupted view to the south-east as the planets will be very low in the sky.

Canada's Trudeau says still more work to be done on TPP
But this time, the Canadian prime minister had a somewhat atypical agenda for his face-to-face chat with the Mexican president. It was a stark change in tone from Thursday, when Trump was Xi's guest of honor during a state visit in Beijing.

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 North Taurid Meteor Shower peaks this weekend and you have a good chance of spotting Venus and Jupiter too!

About an hour before sunrise on Monday morning, Venus and Jupiter will rise as one, in a spectacle that will amaze stargazers.

The two worlds will only be visible for a short time before sunrise and won't climb more than about 7 degrees above the horizon. Locally sunrise is at 6:51 a.m., so the optimum time is 6:05 a.m.

"This month Venus pairs up with Jupiter on the morning of November 13th, as they did in 2015 and 2016 when the two planets appeared a little closer than this year". Seeing the sun through a telescope or binoculars can cause serious eye Problem without proper sun filters. "So these close conjunctions are destined to occur", according to Sky and Telescope.

"The orbit of Venus is tipped just 3.4° with respect to Earth's, Jupiter even less at 1.3°".
