Venus will pass Jupiter in late June/early July, 2015. Especially tonight and tomorrow June 30 and July 1 –one can witness the closest Venus-Jupiter conjunction until August 27, 2016.
These very bright worlds will be hard to miss (unless it’s cloudy!). As dusk turns into darkness, note the star Regulus above Jupiter, in line with Venus and Jupiter. Day by day, watch as Venus and Jupiter race toward Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo.
