The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter over the next couple of nights is supposed to be so close (at least from out perspective) that they appear to be one super bright star.
Some believe it was this conjunction of one like it that appeared the night Jesus Christ was born.
Personally I was not there so I can not say this is fact or not.
Unfortunately where I live they are both appearing so close to the tree line that I cannot get a good picture of them.
Hopefully if this continues through the weekend I will be able to get some better pictures from some other location.
