Attention sky dorks…we’re in for a rare treat. If the weather cooperates, we will be able to see Venus and Jupiter glowing very brightly near each other for several hours after sunset starting tonight.

According to space.com, it’s a rarity called planetary conjunction, and this one in particular occurs only once every 13 months.

They are two of the brightest planets, and they should be easily visible in the Western sky to the naked eye.

We’re expecting cloudy skies and some showers tonight, so not the best viewing conditions for us, but we’ll hopefully have clearer skies on Wednesday for a shot to see the planetary goodness.

I love this stuff. I’m the type who will camp out at 2am to watch a meteor shower. There’s just something beautiful and relaxing about just staring into the heavens.
