Catch a cosmic feast above the skies of Manchester on Monday morning

The close pairing of the two brightest planets is known as the Venus-Jupiter conjunction.

The planets will appear in conjunction in the south-east, just above the horizon, and may appear to look like one bright star.

You should go out about 45 minutes before sunrise, and can expect a better a view if you stand on a hilltop or balcony, according to EarthSky.

According to AccuWeather, optimal viewing opportunities in the United Sates will be across the Mississippi Valley and over the Central Rockies, where meteorologists are expecting clear skies.

If you have a telescope you may also just get the opportunity to catch sight of Jupiter's four Galilean moons Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

NFL confirms Jerry Jones threatened lawsuit against league
With Boies' help, Jones is trying to move the other owners toward his side; Jones needs 24 owners to approve of Goodell's firing. Jones is one of the most powerful owners in the league, but he's in a battle he may struggle to win.

In a very rare treat for stargazers, the two planets will be passing each other which will be visible in the eastern sky about an hour before sunrise, staying low on the horizon.

Venus will be 152 million miles (246 million km) from us, while Jupiter is almost four times farther away, at 594 million miles (956 million km), the portal said.

Venus and Jupiter will remain close to each other in the days leading up to and after the conjunction.

If you miss it, the next conjunction of Venus and Jupiter will be on January 22, 2019, according to In the Sky.

The space agency advises caution when looking at the event, as the approaching sunrise could damage vision if people accidentally look at it, especially with enhancement devices like binoculars or telescopes.
