Great Conjuction of Jupiter and Saturn

Tonight, in the southwestern sky after sunset, Jupiter’s faster orbital motion will bring it within 0.1 degrees of slower Saturn, causing the two planets to appear, to the unaided eye, as a single bright object. The two planets haven’t been as close together since Galileo was using his spyglass in 1623 – and they won’t meet so close again until 2080. The two planets will easily appear together in the field of view of a backyard telescope at high magnification. They’ll still be telescope-close for more than a week on either side of that date.
