Between 30 June and 1 July, the bright planets Venus and Jupiter will offer an amazing show in the sky: they will be in close conjunction, reaching a minimum angular distance of about 20 arc minutes. This is a quite close encounter: consider that the angular size of the lunar disk is about 30 arc minutes, that is half a degree.

The chart above, calculated for Central Italy, shows how the western horizon will look like at sunset. This will be a superb sight.

The Virtual Telescope will offer an online observation showing this outstanding event. The session is scheduled for 1 July, starting at 19:00 UT.
