Mars and Venus conjunction: The Indian Institute of Astrophysics said that this rare sight of the Moon coming close to India will be visible on July 13. He said that at night it can be seen with the naked eye.
Today Venus and Mars will come close to each other in the sky
There is good news for the people who love space all over the world. Earth’s two neighboring planets Mars and Venus will come closer to each other on 13 July i.e. today. These two planets will come so close together that humans will be able to see this rare sight with their own eyes. Scientists have said that Mars and Venus will be visible in the western part of space after sunset. Not only this, today the Moon will also pass closest to them.
This amazing event happening in the galaxy will show the amazing confluence of planets. This confluence of planets occurs when two planets are very close to each other in sight. However, in reality these two planets are quite far from each other. Earth exists between the two planets in the solar system. Mars and Venus will be visible within 0.5 degrees of each other and can be easily seen from Earth. However, in reality these two will be at a great distance from each other. According to the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, during this time the Moon will also be a part of this coincidence.
Venus and Mars will be very close on July 13
The institute said that Mars and Venus will reach about 4 degrees on July 13. The Indian Institute of Astrophysics said that this rare sight of the Moon coming close to India will be visible on July 13. He said that at night it can be seen with the naked eye. In the weekend, both the planets were moving towards each other and both of them will come very close to each other on 13th July. The most recent planetary confluence was visible in February. During this Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury came together. Such an incident will now happen after five years.
How to see the confluence of planets in India?
The special thing about this confluence of Venus and Mars is that its timing is matching the timing of the moon. In such a situation, Mars and Venus will be visible with a thin crescent, which will illuminate only 10 percent. Due to Corona, this time no special program has been organized in India on this occasion. But experts have advised sky watchers to look west in the sky, so that they can see Mars and Venus. A telescope can be used for better viewing.
