NEW DELHI (PTI): Sky gazers are in celestial treat on Tuesday as Jupiter and the Moon are converging for a beautiful conjunction.

The bright pair of the Jovian planet and the moon can be seen even through thinly-clouded skies and city lights, Science Popularisation Association of Communicators and Educators (SPACE) President C B Devgun told PTI.

The two heavenly bodies will be around 3.5 degrees apart, which means as seen from earth the apparent distance between them in the sky would be 7 times the size of full moon, he said.

Conjunction is a term used in positional astronomy for the relative positions of celestial bodies. In the Moon-Jupiter conjunction, two celestial bodies will appear near each another in the sky. The event, also sometimes known as an appulse, will visible for hours after sunset.

As the sun goes down in the evening, one can look south-east to see the celestial phenomenon.
