Cosmic Unity

If you've been looking at the night sky in the early evening over the past few weeks, you can't help but have noticed two very bright celesital bodies to the west.  These are actually planets; Venus (the brighter of the two), and Jupiter.

They will keep closing in the sky to over the coming days with the conjunction climaxing between the 12th - 15th March, beyond which they will again diverge.
