Tonight's Sky for June 22: Venus and Jupiter Separated by 5 Degrees


Tonight, Venus and Jupiter, third and fourth brightest objects in the sky, are separated by about 5 angular degrees, which is about half the distance they were from each other only about a week ago. Come month's end, they'll be within a degree of each other so, with a nice even number tonight, it may be a good time to begin the conjunction approach watch if you haven't already done so. For more fun, take a picture, it isn't hard to do!
