Conjunction of Venus and Saturn

A spectacular conjunction of Venus and Saturn will occur in the evening skies of January 22. The two planets will lie near the southwestern horizon in the constellation Capricornus. Venus (mag -3.9) will be brighter than Saturn (mag 0.7), and both will be visible to the naked eye.

From Cesena  , the pair will become visible around 17:25 (CET), 13° above your south-western horizon, as dusk fades to darkness. They will then sink towards the horizon, setting 1 hour and 53 minutes after the Sun at 18:58.

In the coming weeks, Venus will gain altitude in the evening sky while Saturn will be lost in the Sun's glare. The ringed planet will then pass behind the Sun and remain hidden for several weeks.
