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.
