Conjunction of Venus and Jupiter – August 18, 2014

The actual conjunctions, the two planets’ closest approach to one another, occurs before they rise right before dawn. At conjunction, they are separated by .2 degrees. Their separation will have increased to .5 degrees, the width of the full Moon, and will still present a pretty pair when they rise in the east shortly before sunrise.
