GUWAHATI, June 30 � Jupiter and Venus will appear in a fashion of a bright, brilliant double star over the evening sky tomorrow.
The two planets will appear very close together, passing within one-third of a degree of each other, said Curator of the Guwahati Planetarium Babul Chandra Bora in a press release here today.
Bora said the pair of planets will be visible just after the setting of the Sun and they will continue to appear over the sky for more than two hours and 30 minutes at a stretch, until they disappear in the western horizon. They will be seen closer to each other for a week, though the distance between them will gradually increase.
The Guwahati Planetarium and Pragjyotish Amateur Astronomers� Association will jointly arrange a week-long evening sky observation programme in this connection from July 1 at the Planetarium compound between 6-30 pm and 7-30 pm.
Sky watchers taking part in this programme will also be able to view the ringed planet Saturn simultaneously during these days, said Bora.
