Venus outshines Saturn in twilight conjunction

Venus outshines Saturn in twilight conjunction
# 17 January 2023 10:59 (UTC +04:00)

The brilliantly bright planet Venus passes Saturn this week in a particularly close conjunction that is visible across the globe, APA reports citing space.com.

Venus and Saturn will be in conjunction on Sunday (Jan. 22), appearing close enough together in the sky to both be seen through a telescope. The close pairing will also be visible to the naked-eye.

Those two planets, plus a crescent moon, will be putting on an ever-changing display in the dusk during this weekend on into the start of next week. The planets will sink lower as the twilight deepens, so make sure you have a clear and unobstructed west-southwest horizon to get the best view.
