This evening Venus and Jupiter are clearly visible, in celestial conjunction, close to each other, in the north-west sky.
Venus looks brighter because it’s closer to us, with Jupiter just beneath it. With binoculars Stephen reckoned he could see a couple of sparks near Jupiter, which would be the brightest of its four moons. I have trouble using binoculars, so I just snapped with my little camera.
“With these two planets in a line
perhaps it’s meant to be a sign?”
