Venus meets Neptune: a planetary conjunction – live event (15 Feb. 2023)
Next 15 Feb. 2023, planet Venus, the brightest object in the sky after the Sun and the Moon, will have a close conjunction with Neptune, the farthest, hence the faintest, known planet in the Solar System. We will bring this cosmic “meeting” to you live, online.
At the time of our live feed, Venus and Neptune will be about a quarter-degree apart (half of angular size of the full Moon). Venus is about 65-thousand times brighter than Neptune, with the latter visible only through binoculars. The Virtual Telescope Project is ready to bring the experience to you: join us live, online, from the comfort of your home.
The live feed is scheduled for 15 Feb. 2023, starting at 17:30 UTC.
