Conjunction between the two brightest planets will happen when both these planets will rise above their horizon and will be at 0.3 degreesapart (the diameter of half of moon) in the night sky.

Weather permitting, for those observers who don't have any tall obstructions such as trees or buildings toward the east-northeast, this "double planet" should make for a very striking visual spectacle, no doubt attracting the attention of even those who don't give more than a casual glance at the sky, Space added. On this day in 2008, visible the world over, was an unusual superposition of our Moon and the planets Venus and Jupiter.

The distance between the two planets is approximately 416 million kilometers but for this time it will appear like they are orbitting the Sun side by side.
