Watch Venus and Jupiter come so close that they almost “kiss” in the night sky tonight

Venus and Jupiter will approach each other in the night sky on Wednesday (March 1) during a meeting between the solar system’s record-breakers, the hottest planet and the largest.

During the close approach between the two planets, Venus and Jupiter will pass within just 29.4 arc minutes, or about half a degree, of each other, according to In the Sky (opens in a new tab). They are so close that the two planets appear to “kiss” in the night sky. (Your clenched fist held at arm’s length covers about 10 degrees of the sky.)
