Stargazers can see a unique night sky occurrence as two of our solar system’s brightest planets, Jupiter and Venus will meet in conjunction and this conjunction will be seen after sunset. both planets were separated by 29 degrees at the beginning of this month and are now progressively approaching each other.
On March 1, from Mumbai, the pair will become visible around 18:57 (IST), 26° above your western horizon, as dusk fades to darkness. They will then sink towards the horizon, setting 2 hours and 8 minutes after the Sun at 20:51.
Venus will be at mag -4.0, and Jupiter at mag -2.1, both in the constellation Pisces.
The pair will be a little too widely separated to fit comfortably within the field of view of a telescope, but will be visible to the naked eye or through a pair of binoculars.
