Look in the eastern sky just before sunrise this week for a close encounter between planets Saturn and Venus. They will be closest on Tuesday November 27 when they will fit together in a low-power telescope field.
You’ve no doubt heard of the phrase, "like two ships that pass in the night." Well, come early Tuesday morning (Nov. 27), you’ll be able to watch two planets that will pass each other in the dawn.
The planets in question are Venus and Saturn. One planet will be slowly descending into eventual obscurity, while the other will become increasingly prominent in the days and weeks to come.
