Noga and Jupiter, the two brightest planets in the solar system, gave an exciting spectacle to astronomy enthusiasts last weekend: they were seen in the night sky closest to each other at the shortest distance between them since 2016.
The climax of the play took place between Saturday and Sunday, and now the stars are moving away from each other. But in the coming days it will still be possible to notice the closeness between them even with the naked eye. Such a planetary combination occurs every year, but this year the stars have appeared much closer than usual. According to the astronomy site Space, such a spectacle will not happen again until 2039.
Experts explained that although they look very close in view from Earth, in reality the distance between them is millions of miles.
Experts recommend looking at the sky before dawn and looking for two bright and dazzling spots very close to each other. Anyone who looks at the telescope may also see Mars and Saturn form a straight line with Jupiter and Noga.
