Description

A spectacular conjunction between Venus and Mars takes place on October 5th 2017. It's easily visible with the naked eye , just look at your eastern sky 60 minutes before sunrise to see the spectacle.The converaging planets might even look like they're going to touch but they won't. To the human eye, however, the distance between the two will appear breathtakingly small.At closest approach, Venus and Mars easily fit within the same binocular or telescopic field of view. If you have a small telescope, take a look.Because Venus is an interior planet, we sometimes see it as a crescent, like the Moon. But not this time.On October 5th, Venus will be nearly full. You'll see 91% of the cloudy disk of Venus illuminated by the Sun. On October 2 brilliant Venus rises around 5 a.m. local daylight time, shortly before morning twilight starts to paint the sky. The inner planet shines at magnitude –3.9 — far brighter than any other point of light in the night sky — and remains prominent even as twilight brightens the sky.About 15 minutes after Venus pokes above the eastern horizon this morning, Mars rises directly below it. The Red Planet shines at magnitude 1.8 — less than 1 percent as bright as its neighbor — though it still stands out nicely against the twilight glow. The two planets will edge closer to each other over the next few days in the run-up to a spectacular October 5 conjunction. http://www.astronomy.com/observing/sk... Later in the month, enjoy the amazing display of the waning crescent Moon, Venus and Mars for several mornings, centered on October 16. http://earthsky.org/tonight/moon-venu... You don't need any special equipment to see the spectacle but just your eyes. Enjoy the amazing sky show before sunrise.Clips, images credit: ESA/HUBBLE, ESO & NASA/JPLMusic credit: YouTube Audio LibraryHeart Break - Vibe Tracks
