Aug 27: Venus + Jupiter Conjunction (Aug 26, 2016)

(from: AccuWeather News - August 25, 2016; 9:00 PM ET)

Grab your binoculars this weekend: 
Venus and Jupiter won't be this close to each other
for another 50 years!
Stargazers will want to dig out their binoculars and telescopes
this weekend as
Venus and Jupiter
shine so close that they appear as
one large, bright star in the evening sky.
