All those people who used rarely looked at the sky and did not pay attention to the world, will be struck by how close they come together, "- says a senior editor of Sky & Telescope, Scientist Kelly Beatty.

The company named on the calculations of astronomers, can make a bright star Regulus, which, despite its seeming proximity, in fact situated at a distance of 80 light years from Earth, passes the "RIA Novosti" .
The short distance between Venus and Jupiter give astronomers a chance to get a "family photo" of these planets, even with relatively small amateur telescopes with a narrow viewing angle. These pictures giant planet and the "morning star" will be about the same size, but actually not so - many times more Jupiter Venus, and it will be equal to it only because it actually is 12 times farther from the Earth.
The meeting of two of the planets and stars, as noted by the staff Sky & Telescope, will remind the way described in the biblical legends famous "Star of Bethlehem", according to legend, specify the path to the cradle of the newborn Jesus to "Oriental sages."
