Urban Astronomy – Mars/Jupiter Conjunction 05/29/22

Posted May 18, 2022

The night sky is pretty much a mystery to most City Dwellers.  The glare of city light drowns out all but the brightest stars – and planets don’t do much better.  If you are interested, I can tell you where to look to see these far-off worlds.  If you were not interested, you would have stopped reading after the first sentence. 

So, at this point, I know my audience. 

See Mars and Jupiter in Close Conjunction, Sunday, May 29 – around 5:30 AM Central Daylight Time

Sky Chart from Heavens-Above.com   May 29 at 5:30 AM CDT (UTM -5)

You can print out the chart and hold it with East at the bottom while facing East – to match up the planets with the chart.  Cloudy weather is probable, so  check in the days before and after, just in case.

Hasta Luego,
