LOOK UP: Venus and Jupiter to put on spectacular show in night sky


The solar system’s two brightest planets will put on a spectacular show tonight.

Venus and Jupiter will appear to hug each other in a rare conjunction event.

Robin Scagell, vice-president of the Society for Popular Astronomy, said: “Many people will wonder what they are seeing – but it’s just a natural coincidence.

“It will be a beautiful sight and everyone will be able to enjoy it.”

Go outside between 10.30pm and 11pm and look up to see the astronomical wonder.
