If you are an early riser Saturday morning (2/1) then you have a great chance to see two planets that will appear to be fractions of an inch apart!
All you need to do to see them is look southeast just before sunrise and you will get a good look at Jupiter and Venus (no telescope needed). The planets were even closer this morning, but the clouds from last nights rains ruined the viewing.
Each morning over the days ahead the two planets will get farther and farther... so you better check them out soon!
