Mars – Jupiter Conjunction

22 July - 5:30 am CDT

22 July – 5:30 am CDT

   Tomorrow morning, 22 July, the planets Mars and Jupiter will be less than 1 degree apart. Look toward the east-northeast horizon for the bright Jupiter and the dimmer Mars nearby. The banner graphic at the top of the page as well as this graphic are set for 5:30 am CDT. By that time the sky is fairly bright but it may still be dark enough to make out the stars of the open star cluster M-35, just above the two planets. All three objects will easily fit within the field of view of 7×50 binoculars.
