Skywatchers, you have the opportunity to see not just one, but two conjunctions during the month of January 2023. A conjunction is a celestial event in which two planets, a planet and the Moon, or a planet and a star appear close together in Earth’s night sky. Spectacular Venus-Saturn Conjunction Just After Sunset On January 22, 2023, catch the dazzling planet Venus and planet Saturn near each other just after sunset. Start looking near where the sun just set as twilight falls. On the 23rd, the two planets are still only a degree apart, and will be joined by a slim crescent moon. Jupiter-Moon Close Conjunction On January 25th, looking to the southwest 30-45 minutes after sunset. Look high above Venus and Saturn to find the Moon only a degree apart from Jupiter, about halfway up the sky. You'll also be able to capture both of them in the same field of view through binoculars. Discover the beauty and wonder of the night sky that has fascinated humanity for millenia. Clear Skies!
