Here is a beautiful photo of the Venus and Jupiter conjunction which happened in March this year and was visible from the Northern Hemisphere.
The apparent proximity is an optical illusion of sorts. In reality, Venus is nearly 75.9 million miles (122 million kilometers) away from Earth, and Jupiter sits about seven times farther away at 524 million miles (844 million kilometers) from Earth.
For people who dont live in the Northern Hemisphere, don’t worry; the next conjuction will be on the 28th of May 2013 in the South.
