OK,      so you possibly thought it was going to be some grammatical  garbage about   words like "and" and "but". . . but  it 's  not.

Conjunction also describes when two planets appear together  in the night sky  and are   spectacularly  noticeable.  If you glance up at the south western sky  after sunset -- and any time   later (darker)  is much better --  you can't fail to see  Venus   and Jupiter  as two   extra  bright  points.  Venus is so bright  it looks like a big  plane's landing lights coming in at a few thousand feet.

Check the sight out,   and  each night  you will be amazed as these two planets get closer and closer  till conjunction on March  13th  when they wil lbe only a finger's width apart.

Oh  sure,  you  can Google all the detail you like,  but   the main thing is to see it   yourself. . . . . . . it's sheer poetry in motion.

    Sidney, I have been checking out this conjunction, and tonight Venus and Jupiter looked stunning. Actually, the whole scene was beautiful tonight, including the nearly full moon and some wacky colours in the sky just after dusk, where the skyline touched the horizon. Ooops! Rambling again :D

    Oh, I'll surely be checking the night sky for this, Sid. Thank you for letting us know. When I'm offshore fishing, I can easily spot Venus and Mars, but now I'll be looing for Jupiter as well. Love, carolyn

    We used to lie in the grass when we were kids and stare up at the sky. There's a lifetime of beauty there. I'll have to check this out.

    Thanks Sidney! Hoping the clouds clear enough to see the night sky! Rain predicted here!
