A very close conjunction

Whether or not you have a view of the sky on August 27, and whether or not you're reading this before or after August 27, that night has a very unusual and rare astronomical event;  a planetary conjunction (two planets appearing very close together in the sky) between Venus and Jupiter.

In this case, very very close.  Almost on top of each other.

Here's a good video about it.
