Tonight's Sky for June 27: Venus and Jupiter Are Within a Degree of Each Other


Tonight, Venus and Jupiter, third and fourth brightest objects in the sky, are separated by about a single degree. For the record, they were about 5 angular degrees apart just about a week ago. As if 1 degree wasn't close enough, they'll get even closer, coming to within about 1/5th degree of each other. For more fun, take a picture if you have a long-zoom camera, it isn't hard to do!
