APOD: Jupiter and Venus from Earth (2023 Mar 06)

Post by APOD Robot » Mon Mar 06, 2023 5:05 am

Image Jupiter and Venus from Earth

Explanation: It was visible around the world. The sunset conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in 2012 was visible almost no matter where you lived on Earth. Anyone on the planet with a clear western horizon at sunset could see them. Pictured here in 2012, a creative photographer traveled away from the town lights of Szubin, Poland to image a near closest approach of the two planets. The bright planets were then separated only by three degrees and his daughter struck a humorous pose. A faint red sunset still glowed in the background. Jupiter and Venus are together again this month after sunset, passing within a degree of each other about a week ago.

je regarde depuis longtemps tous les matins l'image du jour, et elles sont très souvent très belles et instructives; je n'y connais rien en astronomie, j'aime simplement voir les photos qui sont proposées avec des explications claires, merci

I have been looking at the picture of the day every morning for a long time, and they are very often very beautiful and informative; I know nothing about astronomy, I just like to see the photos that are offered with clear explanations, thank you

This kind of reminds me of an old folk song circa ? 1950s called "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands." Except for one slight difference. The daughter in the photo has literally "She's got TWO WHOLE WORLDS in Her Hands! Two whole worlds in her hands ..."
