Jupiter and Venus Dancing

Did you know that Jupiter and Venus are dating?  Well, they are dancing at least.  This month the two planets, which happen to be the brightest in our sky, are performing a lovely tango for us.  They are appearing very close together in the sky, something scientists call conjunction.  If you have to get up for work before sunrise (or even if you don’t!) look to the east to see the pretty sight.
