Jupiter to Pass Venus on March 13
It has been recently revealed that people living in the south west will be able to see brighter planets of universe in night sky. It will happen for the first time in last eight years and people will be able to view lights coming from the two brightest celestial objects.
Jupiter and Venus planets are the two planets after sun and moon to exhibit generous amount of light. It is said that people will be able to see light in the sky in the next week as both the planets are coming closer to each other.
Experts said that among the two, Venus is brighter for two reasons. First being that it’s close to the sun and its shiny structure illuminates sunlight twice as bright as sunlight that comes on Earth’s surface. In addition, Jupiter is double the size of Venus, and this factor covers all the deficits it has and put it among the list of bright planets.
Jupiter is moving downwards, while Venus remains in its position. It is expected that Jupiter will pass through Venus on March 13 and there will be just one arm distance between the two planets. The concept has raised question in the mind of people, who think that Mercury should be the brightest planet after sun and moon as it is closest to sun.
Experts said that there is no second opinion about the fact that Mercury is closest to sun. However, it has dusky covering rather white covering like Venus. Grey dusky covering does not allow sunlight to illuminate through its surface.
In addition, it has also been revealed that Mars has come closer to Earth and it can be witnessed through orange strikes in the east direction, but in evening.
