Venus Jupiter Conjunction 2019
Conjunctions occur when two planets share the same right ascension, the east-west longitude in the sky as measured from an observer on Earth. Since the major planets all orbit the sun in nearly the same plane, from the point of view of the Earth, they travel in paths across the sky that are roughly similar.
Therefore, when conjunctions happen, the planets appear close together, usually just a few degrees apart.
