The conjunction is over. Venus and Jupiter passed each other on our sky’s dome at 11 UTC (6 a.m. ET) on March 2. But these 2 worlds are the brightest visible in Earth’s skies. And Venus will shine brilliantly in the west after sunset – our bright “evening star – for several more months! Meanwhile, Jupiter – though edging toward the sunset glare in March – is bright enough to remain visible for a few more weeks, perhaps into mid- to late March. How will you know if you can still see Jupiter? Watch after sunset as the 2 worlds draw apart. And see how long you can track Jupiter before it drops into the sunset glare.
